Kim stressed that US-South Korean military exercises being staged now are the largest-ever "aggressive war drill" aimed at his country, formally known as the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. And the vice president believes American voters will be able to pinpoint accomplishments as it reflects on the administration's first 100 days. -South Korea free trade agreement began and there are too many barriers for US businesses in the country.

As for another Trump administration trade priority-Japan-Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross will accompany Vice President Mike Pence on a trip to Japan.

As talks began Tuesday, Aso said the U.S. -Japan alliance has underpinned peace and prosperity in the Asia-Pacific region and that trade friction with the U.S. has given way to an "age of cooperation".

"I really can't comment on the electronic and technical capabilities of our military, but we certainly would recognize that that was a failed missile test, it failed nearly immediately", he said. It also comes at a time when Asian and Pacific nations have flagged concerns about growing protectionism in the US, although Trump seems to have changed course on some key trade issues, such as labeling China a currency manipulator.

"All options are on the table".

Approval ratings for Trump's performance, according to many recent polls, is at record lows for a new commander in chief, but Pence said he "couldn't be more proud" to be a part of the current administration.

In Seoul, Pence said he was concerned that the US trade deficit with South Korea has "more than doubled" in the five years since their free-trade agreement took effect.

Most Americans no longer think Trump keeps his promises

Uber's revenue hits $6.5 billion in 2016, still makes large loss
Even its CEO, Travis Kalanick, found himself in a spot after he was videotaped arguing with an Uber driver over falling incomes. If Uber Technologies Inc. had been a public company in 2016, it would have been among the top 10 biggest money losers.

"(South Korea) has become able to strike from sea not only the enemy's major bases on the ground but also core facilities, including those related to ballistic missile launches", said Lee Sang-moon, head of the DAPA's guided weapon development team.

Robert Lighthizer, Trump's pick for US trade representative, named Japan as "a primary target" for improving access for American farm products. And our hope is that we'll be able - working with China, working with our partners here in South Korea, working with Japan and other allies across the region - to achieve this objective through peaceable means.

But U.S. Vice President Mike Pence said it is in U.S. interest to negotiate trade deals on a bilateral basis.

President Trump has made it clear that the patience of the United States and our allies in this region has run out, and we want to see change.

But the revelation could be damaging to the United States position in Asia, experts say, as it feeds the idea that President Trump cannot always be taken at his word.

To deter North Korea's nuclear tests, ballistic missile launches and other actions, it is imperative to display readiness to take even stern punitive actions.

Asked what North Korea must do, he repeated that "all options are on the table, and there they will remain". This, they said, is crucial as Beijing has influence over the regime in Pyongyang.
