Mike Pence: US to Maintain Vigilance Over North Korea’s Nuclear Program

Vice President Mike Pence has said the U.S. intends to remain vigilant and work with its Indo-Pacific allies to heighten pressure on North Korea to abandon the latter country’s nuclear weapon development efforts, DoD News reported Thursday.

He told audience during a speech Wednesday at Yokota Air Base in Japan that North Korean threats have prompted the U.S. to “act with vigilance.”

“Together with our allies and partners, we will continue to strive to peacefully dismantle North Korea’s nuclear program and alleviate the suffering of its people,” Pence added.

He noted that the U.S. will be prepared to defend its homeland and respond to any deployment of conventional or nuclear weapons.

“We will protect our people, we will defend our freedom, and together we will forge a future of security, prosperity and peace for both of our nations for generations to come.”
