Vice President Mike Pence has arrived in South Korea, where he’s due to attend the opening of the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang on Friday. Pence’s South Korea trip comes amid a thaw in tensions between North and South, as the two countries prepare to field a joint women’s hockey team and participate in cultural diplomacy. Ahead of his trip to South Korea today, Pence visited Japan, where he met with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and spoke to U.S. troops at the Yokota Air Base.

Vice President Mike Pence: “We are ready for any eventuality. The United States of America will always seek peace. We will ever strive for a better future. But you, the instruments of American power, know—and let our adversaries know—all options are on the table.”
