North Korea Missile Launch Fails A Day After Military Parade
But while Tillerson's statement signaled a change in USA policy toward North Korea, Pence's came after the U.S. had launched two high-profile military assaults on targets in Syria and Afghanistan, both in their way unprecedented escalations of force by President Trump.
However, Kim Jong-un has refused to back down, despite edging towards all-out war with the US. Pence says, "North Korea would do well not to test his resolve".
He said his country's "era of strategic patience" with North Korea was over.
Vice President Mike Pence arrived in Seoul, South Korea shortly after the failed missile launch.
Tensions have been escalating on the peninsula, with heated rhetoric from both North Korea and the US.
How did we get here?
"The president and his military team are aware of North Korea's most recent unsuccessful missile launch". During the summit, Trump told the press, "We've had a long discussion already, and so far I've gotten nothing".
As the brown bomber jacket-clad vice president was briefed near the military demarcation line, two North Korean soldiers watched from a short distance away, one taking multiple photographs of the American visitor. Pyongyang is capable of a substantial military reprisal against South Korea and Japan using nuclear, chemical, biological, and conventional weapons, jeopardizing millions of citizens in those countries. It test-fired a missile on Sunday that exploded within seconds of launch, following a grand military parade on Saturday.
"On behalf of the president of the United States, my message to the people of South Korea is this: We are with you 100 percent".
"The presence of USA forces here in South Korea are a long-standing commitment to the Asia Pacific".
Pence made an unannounced visit to the Demilitarized Zone at the start of his 10-day trip to Asia in a US show of force that allowed the vice president to gaze at North Korean soldiers from afar and stare directly across a border marked by razor wire. "We have bled together, we have prospered together, and on that foundation, the people of the United States of America and South Korea will face the future together".

Pence told reporters near the DMZ that President Donald Trump was hopeful that China would use its "extraordinary levers" to pressure the North to abandon its weapons program, a day after the North's failed missile launch.
"Just in the past two weeks, the world witnessed the strength and resolve of our new president in actions taken in Syria and Afghanistan", said Pence, standing beside Prime Minister Hwang Kyo-ahn, South Korea's acting president.
What does North Korea say?"The type of missile is still being assessed", the U.S. Pacific Command says in an emailed statement.
He emphasized the USA hopes not to use military force but warned "this problem is coming to a head".
The North casts the United States as the aggressor. However, he added, "all options are on the table" when it comes to forcing change in North Korea.
He said the USA was "disturbing global peace and stability and insisting on the gangster-like logic that its invasion of a sovereign state is decisive and just and proportionate and contributes to defending the worldwide order".
He called the North Korean regime "the region's most unsafe and urgent threat" and said that Washington hopes to achieve denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula "through peaceable means", but reiterated that "all options are on the table".
China has reiterated its call for North Korea to stop all tests, and has also called for a peaceful solution.
Lu said the government in Beijing wants to restart multiparty talks that dissolved in 2009, and pointed out that the Chinese government and the North Korean government have some common interests that could be addressed in such a forum, such as the deployment of U.S. missile defense batteries in South Korea, to which both countries have objected.
