Vice President Mike Pence on Thursday said the United States is ramping up the pressure on China "to do more" about the North Korea situation.

Appearing on Fox News' "Fox & Friends" morning program, Pence said the international community is united in wanting a "peaceable outcome in the Korean peninsula."

"I met with the foreign minister of China and we made it very clear that we expect them to do more," Pence told Fox News. "We truly do believe to achieve a peaceable outcome and nuclear-free Korean peninsula that China has to lead that effort in a very real way, bring pressure to bear on North Korea."

During an earlier interview with "CBS This Morning," Pence reiterated that all options are on the table with North Korea.

"The possession of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles in the hands of a regime that routinely threatens the people of the United States and our allies is just simply not acceptable," Pence told CBS.

"The president has wanted to make it clear and made it clear that in the event North Korea takes action, that threatens the United States or our allies, that our response will be overwhelming and effective," Pence said.

"We have military options but we earnestly desire a peaceable outcome," Pence told CBS. "The entire world community has one goal — the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula. We want to achieve that peaceably, but all options are on the table."
