Pence reinforces tough position against North Korea at UN

Vice-President Pence mirrored the President's comments a day later saying that the U.S. has "great strength and patience", while also saying that "all options are on the table".

"As the president said yesterday, the United States has 'great strength and patience, ' but all options are on the table", Pence told the council at a meeting on the reform of U.N. peacekeeping operations, referring to President Donald Trump's speech to the U.N. General Assembly Tuesday.

"There was some talk two or three weeks ago, some commentators, that the most powerful military on Earth doesn't have the ability to take action to defend our people, that's wrong", said Pence.

Yellen declined to comment on the likelihood of her getting a second term and said she hasn't met the president in some time. Zandi said with the unemployment rate "falling dramatically" and nearing four percent, inflation eventually will follow.

"But keeping the peace requires more than peacekeeping, it requires action and the unwavering resolve of every country gathered here today", Pence said, before hashing out USA priorities on specific issues, including North Korea and Iran.

He added, "The president desires a peaceful resolution of this confrontation with North Korea and we'll continue to pursue that, but it all begins when the Kim regime announces their willingness to abandon their nuclear and ballistic missiles program and not before". "We will do so with military power that is both effective and overwhelming".

The vice president's remarks, the strongest language from Washington to date, betrayed growing US impatience with Myanmar (formerly Burma) leader and Nobel Peace Prize victor Aung San Suu Kyi, who has drawn criticism for her relatively muted response. "And now, as the President said, 'threatens the entire world with unthinkable loss of human life, '" Pence said.

"A clear majority of the Human Rights Council's members fail to meet even the most basic human rights standards", Pence said. "There is technical compliance and then there's the spirit of the agreement".

"Unless this violence is stopped, which justice demands, it will only get worse, and it will sow seeds of hatred and chaos that may well consume the region for generations to come and threaten the peace of us all", Pence told the U.N. Security Council.
