Mike Pence fires fresh warning to North Korea
Published on Apr 19, 2017
Mike Pence, the US vice president, has said that the US will counter any North Korean attack with an "overwhelming and effective American response".
Pence sent the warning in a strong speech in Japan's capital of Tokyo as he continues his tour of Asia.
Meanwhile, the US is backtracking on claims made last week that a naval strike group was heading to waters near North Korea as a show of strength.
