This was Pence's first media interaction after United States forces launched precision strikes against Assad regime targets associated with the use of chemical weapons in Syria.

He told reporters at the Summit of the Americas in Lima, Peru, yesterday that the operation "significantly eroded" and "degraded" Syrian chemical weapons capabilities and that the mission was "completely accomplished".

Lerner, who serves as a deputy for U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, was planning to join Pence's team while continuing to work with Haley, Axios reported.

Pence said the US, Britain and France "delivered a clear and unambiguous message to the Syrian regime". Both Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto have argued against scrapping the $1.2 trillion deal.

US negotiators discussing changes to the North American Free Trade Agreement also recently floated the idea that 40 percent of automotive production must occur in areas paying wages of between $16 to $19 per hour.

During his meeting with Pence, Pena Nieto urged for the relationship between Mexico and the USA to be based on "mutual respect".

'I think President Pena Nieto understands that he and President Trump have a difference of opinion on that, ' he said. Pence, meanwhile, tends to be more scripted in his exchanges and frequently glanced down at highlighted index cards as he spoke to Latin American leaders here.

Pence credited the strong leadership of President Trump and USA allies for conducting what he says was a successful strike with no reported civilian casualties.

Pence left the summit late Friday so he could confer with USA congressional leaders by telephone from his hotel suite about Trump's plans to announce the missile strikes.
