“Do not test the strength of our military forces” | US VP Mike Pence gives North Korea a warning

The US Vice President Mike Pence on Monday warned North Korea not to test the resolve of the US “or the strength of our military forces. This warning followed a failed North Korea missile test.

Pence linked recent US military strikes in Syria and Afghanistan with the situation in Korea, saying they showed the “strength and resolve of our new president.” “We will defeat any attack and we will meet any use of conventional or nuclear weapons with an overwhelming and effective response,” Pence said, adding that when it came to North Korea “all options are on the table.
Tensions between the US and North Korea has increased in recent weeks, amidst back and forth banter from the US and North Korea and  warnings that North Korea might be preparing got a sixth nuclear test. Amid concerns the US might launch a preemptive strike on North Korea, Pence said Washington would “closely consult” with Seoul “as we make decisions moving forward.”
Earlier, Pence visited the Korean demilitarized zone (DMZ), which he described as the “frontier of freedom.” The DMZ is  the highly fortified de facto border between North and South Korea. It’s four kilometers (2.5 miles) wide, stretches 250 kilometers (160 miles) and is dotted with military guard posts, mines and defensive structures.
It was established by the 1953 armistice agreement which ended the Korean War, though both sides technically remain at conflict as no peace treaty has ever been signed.
At the Panmunjom Joint Security Area, which Pence visited Monday, North and South Korean soldiers stand watch feet away from each other, the only place where the two forces come face to face.
