Pence visited the Demilitarized Zone between North and South Korea and addressed U.S. servicemen on the USS Ronald Reagan in Japan, where he warned North Korea not to test the resolve of the U.S. military, promising it would have an “overwhelming and effective” response to any use of conventional or nuclear weapons.
