China urges North Korea to halt missile tests

  • North Korea has been warned not to provoke the international community

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Monday said a new United Nations resolution over North Korea said parties involved in tensions on the Korean peninsula can have dialogue when conditions are right.

The country's statement issued on Monday came two days after the UN Security Council unanimously approved new sanctions to punish the North including a ban on coal and other exports worth over one billion USA dollars.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is attending the ASEAN meetings.

The government statement reiterated Pyongyang's previous stance that it will never place its nuclear program on the negotiating table as long as the United States maintains a hostile policy against the North.

China and Russian Federation both still met with the North Korean delegations on the sidelines though - a slight snub to the American campaign -- although China did take a rare step to publicly warn North Korea of further missile or nuclear tests.

However, the top United States diplomat said it was not a matter of stopping the launches by "a specific number of days or weeks".

However, U.S. figures calculated using a different methodology showed little change in the gap during the first five months year on year.

Thornton says the USA wants to ensure that with the new sanctions, there's "not this kind of episodic back and forth that we've seen".

"On Aug. 7, Tillerson and Kang will be holding a trilateral foreign ministers" meeting with Japan's newly appointed Foreign Minister Taro Kono, including a business luncheon, where they are planning to discuss ways to respond to North Korea's nuclear weapons and missile programs.

He made the remarks at the ASEAN Regional Forum.

Wang said he urged North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho to stop carrying out intercontinental ballistic missile tests.

The ruling Communist Party's People's Daily newspaper detailed in a published piece that: "Sanctions to the greatest possible extent must avoid causing negative impacts to ordinary people and to third countries, and avoid bringing disaster to the country in question's normal and legal trade and business exchanges with the outside world, people's normal lives, and the humanitarian situation".

"Do not violate the U.N.'s decision or provoke worldwide society's goodwill by conducting missile launching or nuclear tests", Wang said, in an unusually direct admonition.

Since taking office in May President Moon Jae-in has tried to balance pressure with engagement to defuse tensions with the nuclear North Korean state.

She says in the past, there's been a pattern in which China complies with sanctions after a North Korean provocation, but then slips back over time.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi says he urged his North Korean counterpart to abide by United Nations resolutions and stop provoking "the global community's goodwill" with missile launches and nuclear tests.

"The two presidents made a decision to continue cooperation to deter and respond to North Korea's additional provocation based on a strong joint defense posture", said South Korean Presidential Spokesman Park Soo-hyun at a briefing on Monday.

In a Twitter post, Trump said he was "very happy and impressed with 15-0 United Nations vote" on the sanctions.

They called on ASEAN "to maximize pressure on North Korea".

Liu also urged North Korea to "cease taking actions that might further escalate tensions".
