ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. U.S. Vice President Mike Pence held a meeting with South Korean acting President Hwang Kyo-ahn on Monday (April 17) in Seoul, a day after North Korea's failed missile launch, reiterating that the U.S. "era of strategic patience" with Pyongyang was over. Pence is on the first stop of a four-nation Asia tour intended to show America's allies - and remind its adversaries - that the Trump administration is not turning its back on the increasingly volatile region. Earlier in the day, Pence visited the demilitarized border between North and South Korea, where is a heavily mined, four-km-wide (2.5-mile-wide) strip of land lined with barbed wire running across the Korean peninsula, with soldiers on both sides. The United States, its allies and China are working together on a range of responses to North Korea's latest failed ballistic missile test, Trump's national security adviser said on Sunday (April 16), citing what he called an international consensus to act.
