    US policy of Strategic Patience over North Korea ends, Pence

    Speaking alongside South Korea's acting President Hwang Kyo-ahn later, he said North Korea had conducted nuclear and missile tests as the previous US administration had observed a policy of "strategic patience", but this was now over.

    US policy of Strategic Patience over North Korea ends, Pence

    US Vice-President Mike Pence has said his country's "era of strategic patience" with North Korea is over.

    Mr Pence first made the remarks at the demilitarised zone (DMZ), the area dividing the two Koreas, during a visit to South Korea to reaffirm ties.

    His visit comes amid escalated tensions on the peninsula, with heated rhetoric from both North Korea and the US.

    He arrived in Seoul on Sunday hours after North Korea carried out a failed missile launch.

    On Monday, the US and South Korea launched a joint air force military exercise to ensure readiness against North Korea, according to South Korean media.

    Mr Pence, whose father served in the Korean War, visited the truce village of Panmunjom, where the war's armistice was signed.

    Speaking alongside South Korea's acting President Hwang Kyo-ahn later, he said North Korea had conducted nuclear and missile tests as the previous US administration had observed a policy of "strategic patience", but this was now over.

    "Just in the past two weeks, the world witnessed the strength and resolve of our new president in actions taken in Syria and Afghanistan," Mr Pence said.

    "North Korea would do well not to test his resolve or the strength of the armed forces of the United States in this region."

    He reiterated US support for South Korea, telling his host: "We are with you 100%."
