Stop testing missiles for an "extended period", Tillerson said, and the USA might deem North Korea ready to talk.

China has called for a resumption of talks on the Korean Peninsula and urged North Korea not to provoke the worldwide community after the UN Security Council voted to impose its toughest sanctions yet on Pyongyang.

The booming ties of China and ASEAN has made China the biggest trading partner of ASEAN since 2009.

"The leaders committed to fully implement all relevant resolutions and to urge the worldwide community to do so as well", the statement added.

And the editorial itself sounded a resigned note about what will happen now that the sanctions have been passed: "Judging from past experience, the North Korean side will prepare a tough response to the resolution, and the US, Japan, and other countries will use the chance to conduct military activities, which will directly cause the situation to escalate".

Any of the two veto-wielding countries could have killed the resolution.

North Korea regularly uses flamboyant language to make threats against the US and the West.

Chinese President Xi Jinping on Tuesday sent a congratulatory message to Rodrigo Duterte, president of the Philippines, which is the rotating chair of the Association of Southeastern Asian Nations (ASEAN), on the 50th founding anniversary of the regional organization.

"China thinks Singapore, as a Chinese-majority nation, should listen a bit more to Beijing", the source, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Reuters.

North Korea responded saying under no circumstances will it give up its nukes or put them on the negotiating table.

Despite the sanctions, analysts say North Korea is unlikely to disarm itself from nuclear weapons. And North Korea, for its part, should stop launching missiles and conducting nuclear tests.

While Manila values its relationship with the three countries, Cayetano urged them not to meddle with the country's maritime dispute with China because "the problem of territorial disputes between China and the Philippines is between China and the Philippines". It has long accused the United States and South Korea of escalating tensions by conducting military drills.

The ministers reiterated their support to the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula by peaceful means and called for restraint and the resumption of dialogue to create conditions promoting peace and stability.

They also urged South Korea and the USA to stop carrying out military drills.

Wang said Tillerson's "Four Nos" promise was a positive signal.

Chinese state media on Monday acknowledged North Korea had to be punished for its missile tests, but criticized the United States for its "arrogance". When completed, the COC will certainly create new opportunities for closer strategic partnerships and greater economic development in the region.

The successful testing of two ICBMs last month suggested the reclusive North was making technical progress, Japan's annual Defence White Paper warned. The women, many of them from Korea and other Asian regions, were forced to provide sex to Japanese soldiers.
