UN Security Council approves new sanctions against North Korea

Rex Tillerson expected to press Asian Countries on North Korean threat

He says stopping the launches would be the "first and strongest signal". It also bars new joint ventures with North Korea.

"What I know, what the president told me is the ARF is a good venue for everyone to [hold] dialogue and for us to hear out North Korea.hopefully they will listen", Cayetano was quoted by local outlet Rappler as saying.

"We hope again that this ultimately will result in North Korea coming to a conclusion to choose a different pathway, and when the conditions are right that we can sit and have a dialogue around the future of North Korea so that they feel secure and prosper economically", Tillerson said at a news conference in the Philippines capital, where he was attending a regional security meeting. He's not specifying what those are.

"It was a good outcome", Tillerson said of the United Nations vote, before a meeting with South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-Wha. Following its second test on July 28, the US reached a deal on the sanctions with China, the North's top trading partner and ally. And the White House says they committed to fully implement all relevant resolutions and to urge the global community to do so as well.

It claimed the sanctions were caused by a "heinous U.S. plot to isolate and stifle" North Korea and said the country will take "action of justice", but did not elaborate.

The foreign ministers of North and South Korea spoke in a rare but brief exchange between the two countries.

The other is to call for the resumption of the six-party talks, stressing the peaceful settlement of the Korean peninsula nuclear issue by diplomatic and political means, to avoid escalation of tension in the peninsula.

Mr Wang's meeting with North Korea's Mr Ri started off cordially, with Mr Ri smiling as the two shook hands.

Rex Tillerson will on Sunday takes his campaign to pressure #North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons program to #Asia. She hailed the resolution as the "single largest economic sanctions package ever leveled against the North Korean regime". "In the early stage, they can take actions from what they agree with, and later they can move to negotiate on their differences step by step".

The United States has remained technically at war with North Korea since the 1950-53 Korean conflict ended in an armistice rather than a peace treaty. The regime added to the tensions with its threat Wednesday to launch a missile strike on the USA territory of Guam in the Pacific. Yet none achieved that goal, and the reason is always the same, foreign affairs experts say. Beijing, however, along with countries like Russian Federation, has been reluctant to take more comprehensive, sweeping measures against Pyongyang, especially after the agreement on the new sanctions last Saturday.

If fully implemented, the new sanctions-which target coal, seafood, and metals exports; prohibit the employment of North Korean guest workers; and expand sanctions on joint economic ventures-could cut North Korea's $3 billion annual export revenue by a third, according to USA officials. She says the US rejects any "moral equivalency" implied by that proposal.

Wang Yi said the United Nations resolution's call for a return to talks emphasized that diplomatic and peaceful means were necessary to avoid tensions and to prevent the crisis from escalating.

President Donald Trump is demanding full and speedy implementation of the new penalties.

Stung by onerous new sanctions from the United Nations Security Council, North Korea on Monday (Aug 7) threatened retaliation "thousands of times" and hinted at a possible attack on the United States.

Ri said in the Monday statement that the nuclear program is for potential self-defense "in the face of a clear and real nuclear threat posed by the U.S".

The pair met on the sidelines of a meeting of the ASEAN Regional Forum in Manila on Sunday.

The forum brought together 27 countries to discuss security issues, including the U.S., China, Japan, Russia and North and South Korea, along with the 10 members of ASEAN.
