"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.

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.
