Pence: 'We believe China should do more' on North Korea

"At this very moment, Russian Federation continues to seek to redraw global borders by force, undermine the democracies of sovereign nations, and divide the free nations of Europe against one another". He emphasized that even though under [U.S.] President [Donald] Trump, the policy of the United States of America is to place the security and the prosperity of America first, but added that "America First" does not mean "America Alone".

Earlier, he met Estonian President Kersti Kaljulaid, the president of Latvia, Raimonds Vejonis, and Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite.

The US Senate passed a sanctions bill Thursday which includes a provision preventing the president from removing sanctions without congressional approval.

Vice President Mike Pence traveled to the Baltic states for strategic meetings with heads of state of fellow North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members to pledge USA commitment to their security.

Pence also said that exports of usa liquid natural gas to the Baltic states, which have already started, "will contribute to prosperity and security" in the three countries which are still heavily dependent on Russian gas.

After his visit to Estonia, Mr Pence confirmed he had held lengthy discussions with Mr Ratas about deploying more missiles, telling reporters: "We spoke about it today, but we didn't talk about a date or time". 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.

U.S. intelligence agencies believe Russian Federation tried to sway the election in favour of President Donald Trump and now there are several investigations looking into whether anyone from his campaign helped.

Manafort to testify on enforcement of the Foreign Agents Registration Act and Russia's attempts to influence USA elections. The president also has denied knowing about the meeting until recently.

U.S. vice-president Mike Pence confirmed that the Pentagon is considering a request from Estonia for more firepower to deter a Kremlin military build up along its frontier.

The United States proudly stood with you as you labored under Communist occupation.

The financial and political assistance provided by the United States is the main factor in building Georgia's statehood, Georgian Foreign Minister Mikheil Janelidze said. "I think he has also said it could have been other actors as well".

US Vice President Mike Pence has reaffirmed Washington's commitment to the security of the Baltic states if they face any aggression from Russian Federation.

In Georgia, Pence is expected to highlight US support for its sovereignty and territorial integrity, the officials said.

Pence told reporters during a visit to Estonia that "we hope for better days, and better relations with Russian Federation".

Local media reported that Ratas also planned to discuss with Pence the issue of bringing anti-aircraft missiles to Estonia.
