Asean and North Korea: China gets lucky

Rex Tillerson expected to press Asian Countries on North Korean threat UN Security Council approves new sanctions against North Korea

Ms Glaser said China might consider oil sanctions if North Korea conducts another nuclear test.

Ri did not respond publicly.

Separately, South Korea says the North has rejected an offer to restart talks, dismissing it as insincere.

North Korea has launched more than a dozen test missiles this year.

In a statement carried by the North's state-run Korean Central News Agency, North Korea's government said the sanctions were a "violent infringement of its sovereignty" that was caused by a "heinous US plot to isolate and stifle" the country.

Saturday's United Nations resolution banned North Korea's main exports: coal, iron and iron ore, lead and lead ore as well as fish and seafood.

US President Donald Trump and his South Korean counterpart, Moon Jae-In, spoke on the phone on Sunday and agreed the North "poses a grave and growing direct threat" to most countries around the world, according to a White House statement. Tens of thousands of them return hard currency to the increasingly isolated regime.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said earlier Sunday, "It was a good outcome".

Stock markets slip as North Korea tensions build
European stock markets fell further in opening trade on Friday on intensifying fears over North Korea , dealers said. The Nasdaq Composite Index plunged 2.1% to 6216.87 and the Standard & Poor's 500 Index dropped 1.45% to 2438.21.

"We will make the USA pay by a thousand-fold for all the heinous crimes it commits against the state and people of this country", the statement said.

The UN Security Council has unanimously approved new sanctions on North Korea, including banning exports worth over $1bn. Very big financial impact!

Wang's statement repeated Beijing's proposal for a "double suspension", or a halt to North Korean nuclear development and to joint U.S.

Despite tweeting last week that the USA was "done talking" about North Korea, Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley also emphasized in her speech Saturday that, "we want only security and prosperity for all nations-including North Korea".

Wang also said he advised his North Korean counterpart to take a "double suspension" approach to easing tensions on the Korean Peninsula, an approach calling for the suspension of North Korea's nuclear tests and the suspension of joint military drills by the USA and Japan. To the administration of U.S. president Donald Trump, who's been blaming Beijing for not doing enough to rein in Pyongyang, it seems to be saying, the ball is in your court.

Lavrov told reporters that he and Tillerson agreed to preserve a diplomatic channel that Russian Federation had earlier suspended as a reaction to the sanctions, the Associated Press reported.

"It's not that easy, but it is a direction that we need to work together towards". One is that if the Communist regime in Pyongyang falls it could undermine the legitimacy of the Chinese Communist Party too.

But restrictions on supplies of oil to North Korea were excluded, apparently due to China and Russia's concerns they could deepen the humanitarian crisis in the cash-strapped nation. "At the end of the day, it will take more than sanctions".

Asked how the US can support the Philippine government in its fight against ISIS without endorsing human rights abuses in President Rodrigo Duterte's bloody crackdown on drugs, Tillerson said there was no conflict.

"Sanction is necessary, but sanction is not the ultimate goal", Wang told reporters.

"What this is going to do is send a very strong message and a united message", U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley told NBC's Today show on Tuesday. "They never have and likely never will".

"[There are] a number of security interests of mutual interests", said Tillerson, "a number of economic areas of interest and I look forward to discussing those today in our ministerial, both threats to all of us and our common response to that".

"China again played the role of a responsible major power", it reads.

Ahead of Sunday's talks, Tillerson visited the Manila American Cemetery and Memorial to pay tribute to more than 17,000 USA and Filipino servicemen who died fighting as allies during World War II.

Also on the agenda for the ASEAN meeting was an attempt to address the rising assertiveness of China in the region as Beijing continues to construct military facilities on man-made islands in the disputed waters of the South China Sea.
