But Pence foreshadowed some reworking of commercial and economic ties, saying that the USA seeks a free and fair relationship that helps job creation and economic growth for both sides.

KORUS, which was signed five years ago, provides duty-free access for 95 percent of consumer and industrial goods. Korea's trade surplus has more than doubled since the deal's entry into force, he said.

"I thought it was important that we went outside", Pence said.

After the announcement, National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster said it was a "prudent" decision to send the ships to waters off the Korean Peninsula to deter the North. U.S. President Donald Trump also said he's sending an "armada" to Korea. Maruf Amin, the head of the Indonesian Ulema Council, the country's top Muslim clerical body, told AFP: "The US is a big country, with major influence, so it should present itself as a country which is friendly to everyone".

From two continents, Pence and Defense Secretary James N. Mattis warned that North Korea's latest failed missile launch was a reckless act of provocation and assured allies in Asia that the USA was ready to work to achieve a peaceful denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

"My hope is that they'll continue to get the message not just from the United States, here in Japan, and in South Korea, but on an increasing basis from China and countries all over the world committing to a denuclearized Korean Peninsula", he said.

On Tuesday, Pence reassured Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe that the us stands "100 percent" behind Japan in working to reign in North Korea's nuclear program, after arriving in Japan from South Korea.

Pence, in an interview with CNN that aired Wednesday, said there were no direct talks between the USA and North Korea "at this time".

Japan and the US have outlined a path forward for economic talks between the countries.

The announcement followed an inaugural meeting Tuesday of the U.S. -Japan Economic Dialogue in Tokyo chaired by visiting U.S. Vice President Mike Pence and Japanese Deputy Prime Minister Taro Aso.

Another set of bio-medical samples from seven people being treated in hospitals were also analysed in two other labs. It was the first direct US attack on the Syrian government's facilities.

Vice President Mike Pence issued another strong warning to North Korea Wednesday.

Widodo's approach to foreign policy has been led more by economic interests than geopolitical considerations: he has pursued increased trade and investment from China, but keeps a diplomatic distance from Beijing and established a strategic partnership with Washington under former President Barack Obama.

Pence also spoke to U.S. and South Korea business leaders in Seoul, saying that the Trump administration wants to restructure the South Korea-U.S. trade deal, known as 'Korus.' He says the trade deficit with South Korea has doubled since the deal came into effect.

Adam Mulawarman, the Indonesian foreign ministry's director of American affairs, said he believed "the visit to Istiqlal reflects the desire of the U.S. to open itself to Islam, to engage in interfaith dialogue". Trump in the past has stated "free and fair" trade is necessary, while criticizing Japan's auto trade as unfair.

The U.S.is trying to ratchet up pressure on North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs.
