On preconditions for reopening talks with North Korea, Tillerson said "we'll know it when we see it". South Korean Minister of Foreign Affairs Kang Kyung-wha held a press conference at a hotel in downtown Manila that morning to discuss the forum's outcome prior to its closing ceremony later that day.
Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster, President Trump's national security adviser, said in an interview Saturday on MSNBC that a military option was still under consideration for dealing with the North Korean threat, but that the United States and its allies wanted first to exhaust all other options to resolve the standoff with Pyongyang peacefully.
"In this regard, we strongly urge the DPRK [Democratic People's Republic of Korea] to immediately comply fully with its obligations under all relevant U.N. Security Council Resolutions", the statement added, referring to resolutions that ushered in worldwide sanctions on North Korea over its nuclear weapons program. "Some ministers reiterated their support for the complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula in a peaceful manner, called for the exercise of self-restraint and underscored the importance of creating conditions conducive for dialogue to de-escalate tensions", it added. "It had faced very hard circumstances, an even more isolated situation at the very start of the forum due to Resolution 2371 and its hardline government statement afterward", Kang said at a news conference.

In characteristically understated fashion, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said of the United Nations action, "It was a good outcome".
There was no direct reaction from North Korea to Tillerson's remarks but in a statement after the U.S. secretary of state made his comments, Pyongyang responded robustly to the new sanctions by saying it was ready to teach the United States a "severe lesson" if it attacked. Malaysia, however, downgraded bilateral ties in February following the assassination on Malaysian soil of the half-brother of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.
"Only dialog and negotiation is the correct way out to address the Korean Peninsula issue", the Chinese foreign minister said in his Sunday remarks, however.
The ministerial meeting, however, had "very limited time for more in-depth" discussion of the issues raised, but the Philippines, as this year's chair of ASEAN, wants to see a "legally binding code of conduct" in the disputed sea region.
