U.S. Vice President Mike Pence landed in South Korea on Sunday, the first stop of his 10-day visit to Asia amid the growing tensions between his country and North Korea. Pence is traveling with his wife Karen and the couple’s two daughters.

Pence is expected to discuss with South Korean officials the various options that the allies could use against North Korea if Pyongyang continues to advance its nuclear program. Last week, U.S. President Donald Trump hinted that his country will take a harder stance against the North Korean aggression, saying: “North Korea is a problem. The problem will be taken care of.”

Trump also took to Twitter to make a statement about North Korea: “I have great confidence that China will properly deal with North Korea. If they are unable to do so, the U.S., with its allies, will!”

The U.S. Army said on Sunday morning that a missile test Pyongyang attempted to carry out failed when the missile exploded seconds after it was launched. South Korea responded to the failed missile test by saying that Pyongyang’s actions are a threat to the whole world.
