(David Caplan, ABC News) – Vice President Mike Pence arrived in South Korea Sunday morning, landing at the U.S. Air Force’s Osan Air Base just hours after North Korea’s failed missile launch.
Pence’s 10-day trip to the region also includes stops in Japan, Indonesia and Australia, with a stop in Hawaii on his return to the U.S. The trip follows the North’s failed missile test, which was timed to the birth anniversary of the country’s late founder and Saturday’s military parade in its capital, Pyongyang. A U.S. aircraft supercarrier is also en route to the Korean Peninsula.
“Welcome to Korea! @VP Pence lands safely at Osan & is greeted by [charges d’Affaires at the U.S. embassy in Seoul] @MarcKnapper,” the U.S. embassy tweeted Sunday morning, along with photos of Pence and his wife Karen deplaning.
