US Vice President Pence tries hand at koala diplomacy Down Under

"Let me make it clear that the United States intends to honor the agreement, subject to the result of the vetting process that has now applied to all refugees considered for admission to the United States of America", said Pence, who is in Australia as part of a 10-day Asia-Pacific tour.

Mr Trump's anger led to a tense phone call with Mr Turnbull in January and an angry tweet in which the president dubbed the deal "dumb".

In January, US president Mr Trump and Mr Turnbull clashed over the agreement that strained ties between the countries.

"Prime Minister Turnbull know that under President Donald Trump the historic alliance between the United States and Australia will grow stronger, our people will grow closer, enhancing our security and prosperity for generations to come", he said.

Turnbull thanked Pence, saying his assurance shows the "integrity" of Trump and his administration.

"We do believe China can do more", he added.

Both men declined to put a number on how many refugees would be resettled under the plan.

Vice President Mike Pence said Saturday that the United States will honor an agreement that former President Barack Obama had with Australia to take in up to 1,250 asylum seekers, adding, however, "that doesn't mean that we admire the agreement", which was described by President Donald Trump as a "dumb" deal.

US Homeland Security officials have been on Nauru and Manus Island in Papua New Guinea to do fingerprinting and security interviews with refugees in the past few weeks.

"I bring greetings this morning from the President of the United States", Mr Pence told Mr Turnbull ahead of their meeting.

Standing alongside Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull at Admiralty House on Saturday, Mr Pence said the best days for the two nations are yet to come.

Mr Pence's visit Down Under is widely viewed as an effort to smooth relations with Australia in the wake of the highly-publicised argument between Mr Turnbull and Mr Trump.

Mr Turnbull opened the bilateral talks at Admiralty House by speaking of how the relationship between Australia and the U.S. stretched back to the battlefields of World War One. The vice president and his family then met with the governor of New South Wales, David Hurley, and his family at Sydney's Government House.

How does the government's U.S. refugee deal work?

"So we recognise that that means more than ever your commitment to our alliance".
