Pence pressures China on North Korea

Pence to visit 3 countries near Russia, stress support

Pence added that under President Donald Trump, the United States stood behind its commitment for mutual defense within North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.

In the Estonian capital of Tallinn, Pence spoke strongly but generally about the U.S. support for eastern European countries.

"We stand with the people and nations of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania, and we always will", Pence said in Tallinn, where he met with the three Baltic presidents - Kersti Kaljulaid, Raimonds Vejonis, and Dalia Grybauskaite, respectively. He's the latest USA official to visit the country in a show of support for NATO's Baltic members.

The vice president and his wife, Karen Pence, arrived in the Estonian capital Tallinn to begin the European trip that also includes stops in Georgia and Montenegro.

Schooling clinches joint-bronze in 100m fly at Worlds
South African Chad Le Clos is the defending champion in the event and is coming off a win in the 200m fly on Wednesday (26 July). The US team did all the race in the lead, winning the fourth gold of the day out of the six finals contested at the Duna Arena.

After Estonia, the Vice-President will visit Georgia and Montenegro. "China is opposed to North Korea's launch activities in violation of UN Security Council resolutions and against the will of the worldwide community", Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said. Washington in the past has argued the missiles are meant to deter missile attacks from Iran and other unpredictable regimes, while Russian Federation sees them as an unacceptable escalation of USA power near its borders. "And that is that America first doesn't mean America alone", Pence said.

The US military displayed Patriot missiles in Lithuania earlier this month after having used them in an exercise there.

United States Vice President Mike Pence on Monday said that Russian Federation was the biggest threat to the Baltic states, reported AP.

He was expected to also convey that message during his talks with leaders of Montenegro and Georgia, where USA and Georgian forces are now holding their largest-ever joint military exercises.

You're members of the Global Campaign to Defeat ISIS, and at this moment I say with gratitude, all three of your nations are participating in NATO's Resolute Support mission in Afghanistan.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg last month demanded more information about Moscow's planned exercise, but also reported that the alliance's Russian Federation deterrent force in Eastern Europe was now fully operational. The US government hoped for a better relationship with Russian Federation, but stood by the NATO treaty's article 5 on collective defence.
