Vice President Mike Pence delivered a new warning to North Korea on Wednesday, saying the United States’ response to any use of weapons by the reclusive state will be “overwhelming and effective.”

Pence spoke to hundreds of U.S. and Japanese sailors from the deck of the USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier in the Yokosuka naval base in Tokyo Bay, Japan.

“North Korea is the most dangerous and urgent threat to peace and security in the Asia-Pacific,” he said. “The United States of America will always seek peace but under President Trump, the shield stands guard and the sword stands ready.”

“Those who would challenge our resolve or readiness should know, we will defeat any attack and meet any use of conventional or nuclear weapons with an overwhelming and effective American response,” Pence said.
