To emphasise that US President Donald Trump wants to boost US trade in the region.
McMaster cited Trump's recent decision to order missile strikes in Syria after a chemical attack blamed on the Assad government, as a sign that the president "is clearly comfortable making tough decisions".
His comments came as Mike Pence, the USA vice president, arrived in Asia and visited the demilitarised zone between North and South Korea, and warned North Korea not to "test" President Donald Trump.
Late on Monday, Pence reiterated in a joint statement alongside South Korea's acting president, Hwang Kyo-ahn, that "all options are on the table" and said any use of nuclear weapons by Pyongyang would be met with "an overwhelming and effective response".
The statements from the North Korean officials came as the USA president, Donald Trump, told the government in Pyongyang that it has "gotta behave" and his vice-president, Mike Pence, said the "era of strategic patience is over".

Russian Federation maintains close ties to North Korea, with which it shares a border, but isn't an ally to the regime like China.
Trump, asked on Monday if he was considering military action, told Fox News Channel he did not want to "telegraph" his plans, like the previous administration had done.
United States officials say tougher sanctions could include an oil embargo, a global ban on North Korea's airline, intercepting cargo ships and punishing Chinese banks doing business with Pyongyang.
Trump said he was with the Chinese president for "hours and hours" over a two-day period earlier this month.
"At the same time, as a permanent member of the U.N. Security Council, China strictly adheres to its global responsibilities, including those from Security Council resolutions", Lu told a daily briefing.
Mr Abe said Japan likewise hopes for peaceful dialogue with Pyongyang, "but at the same time, dialogue for the sake of dialogue is valueless". "Another failed missile attempt notwithstanding this weekend, an unprecedented number of ballistic missile tests, testing nuclear weapons twice in the a year ago".
Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi repeated China's line that the crisis could only be resolved by diplomacy.
