ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. Vice President Mike Pence and his family have come face to face with Australian wildlife in Sydney on Sunday (April 23). Pence, his wife Karen and two daughters, Charlotte and Audrey, were introduced to a variety of native Australian animals, including a koala, echidna, emu and kangaroo by Taronga Zoo keepers. They also visited the white sails of the Sydney Opera House and had a guided tour of the world famous Sydney Harbour by New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian. Pence was visiting Australia on the final leg of a 10-day tour of the Asia-Pacific region that included meetings with political and business leaders in South Korea, Japan and Indonesia. His trip to Australia is the first by a senior official in the Trump administration as the United States looks to strengthen economic ties and security cooperation amid disputes in the South China Sea and tension on the Korean peninsula.
