President Donald Trump pulled the US out of the 12-country trade agreement after his inauguration in January. He said that the dialogue could lead to formal talks on a U.S. -Japan trade agreement, but that he would leave that decision to the future.

A Japanese official says a difference in approach remains with the USA despite an agreement on a framework for new bilateral economic talks.

He also said, "We are with you 100 percent", adding that the USA always seeks peace.

The vice president brought greetings from President Donald J. Trump and commended the troops for their vigilance "here along this historic frontier of freedom".

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence has reassured South Korea that America has its back on security issues.

"The U.S. seeks stronger and more balanced bilateral trade agreements with every country, including Japan", he said.

Vice President Mike Pence visited South Korea and the Korean Demilitarized Zone on Monday.

Pence also said the US would protect freedom of navigation in the South China Sea, the sea lanes vital to global shipping where China has been staking claim to disputed territory.

North Korea did test a missile on Sunday, but by United States and South Korean accounts it failed "within seconds".

Pence said after the meeting that Trump believes it is in America's interest to negotiate economic deals on a bilateral basis.

The only certainty is that the U.S., China, Japan and South Korea are all invested in preventing nuclear war. The term "reckless" is one the North Koreans have used to describe ongoing large-scale USA and South Korean military exercises, which the North calls a dress rehearsal for an invasion.

It said the dialogue would focus on three areas: trade and investment rules and issues, cooperation in macroeconomic policy and specific industry sectors. But Pence expressed impatience with the unwillingness of the regime to move toward ridding itself of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles. With the free trade agreement in mind, Pence clarified the US stance of shifting to focusing on bilateral talks to pursue USA interests.

"Statistics show the United States has achieved much through the free trade agreement", said Kim Kwang-doo, the head of frontrunner Moon Jae-in's campaign advisory group, told Reuters in an interview.

Meanwhile, Kim said the Chinese backlash against the deployment of the U.S. Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) anti-missile system to South Korea would likely end in one or two years based on previous similar instances in other countries subjected to Chinese retaliation via economic pathways. "The more tense things are, the more calm we need to be to find the opportunities and possibilities for dialogue". "But the fact is that they have the overwhelming leverage over the North Korea regime", Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull told reporters Tuesday in Canberra, Australia's capital. China remains North Korea's chief source of fuel and food imports, but Pyongyang seems to have calculated that Beijing's fears of a collapse of Kim Jong Un's hard-line communist regime override any such snubs.
