Mike Pence force China saying should do more on North Korea

FILE – Vice President Mike Pence center on Capitol Hill in Washington Thursday

The tableau of Pence and the three Baltic leaders also underscores one of the themes of his three-and-a-half-day trip to Estonia, Georgia and Montenegro: That the United States is standing - literally - with its Eastern European allies now feeling increased pressure from Russian Federation. He emphasized that even though under [U.S.] President [Donald] Trump, the policy of the United States of America is to place the security and the prosperity of America first, but added that "America First" does not mean "America Alone".

US Vice President Mike Pence delivers a speech next to Estonia's President Kersti Kaljulaid as they visit NATO's Enhanced Forward Presence mission and Estonian troops in Tallinn, Estonia July 31, 2017.

Estonia is one of only a handful of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members to meet the alliance's investment goal of 2 percent of gross domestic product, while Pence said he was pleased that both Latvia and Lithuania have pledged to meet the target by end of 2018. Later Monday, Pence is due in Georgia, a non-NATO member which has shared concerns about Russian Federation, and then to Montenegro, which became NATO's 29th member on June 5.

Speaking to reporters while on a visit to Estonia, Pence said Trump would sign the bill "very soon". "China is opposed to North Korea's launch activities in violation of UN Security Council resolutions and against the will of the global community", Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said.

On August 2, he will attend the Adriatic Charter Summit in Montenegro's capital, Podgorica, U.S. officials said. Congress is also investigating the possibility of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, with Mr Trump's eldest son Donald J. Trump Jr recently confirming that he met a Russian lawyer linked to the government who wanted to discuss removing an earlier round of sanctions.

The remarks come two days after North Korea tested a ballistic missile that it claims can reach all of the United States.

Specific agreements with the US Patriot SAM Estonians yet.

Mr Putin, at a meeting with his Finnish counterpart Sauli Niinisto last week, said "anti-Russia hysteria" is growing and "Russophobic instruments" are being used as part of a domestic U.S. political fight that may result in stricter sanctions against his nation.

Reacting to the move, Mr Pence said: "We hope for better days, for better relations with Russian Federation".

US Vice President Mike Pence on Monday said Moscow's demand that Washington cut 755 American diplomatic staff in Russian Federation will not lessen the US commitment to its allies.

In Georgia, officials said Pence will highlight USA support for the Caucasus nation's sovereignty and territorial integrity.
