Pence: United States Are Committed to a Nuclear-Free Korean Peninsula

‘The world community and community in the region, and the United States, are committed to a nuclear-free Korean peninsula’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:
VAN SUSTEREN: " I don't pretend to know the solution, but it seems like every administration has tried something. We've tried talking to them. We've tried sanctions. We've tried six-party talks. And what's happened is that every time you pick up the newspaper, they're moving further and further ahead. They've had another test on a nuclear weapon last September, I think it was their fifth successful one. They've got the missile launch that you just spoke on. You know, I'm not suggesting we invade them, not suggesting anything. Are there any new ideas? Because this is -- the signs are bad. They're not moving in a direction in a good direction, they are creeping in a very bad direction."
PENCE: "Well, and the world community and community in the region, and the United States, are committed to a nuclear-free Korean peninsula. And part of what you're going to see the president do is continue to engage China, continue to engage Russia, Japan, other allies in the region. Of course, South Korea. To bring pressure to bear to achieve that objective of a non-nuclear Korean peninsula."
