  • Tillerson: US Willing to Talk to North Korea If Missile Tests Stop

Trump, who receives daily intelligence briefings, would presumably be in a position to know whether US intelligence officials have reason to believe Kim Jong Un's regime in fact did load cruise missiles onto a patrol boat recently.

"He has been very threatening beyond a normal state, and as I said they will be met with fire, fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before".

That came a day after China and Russian Federation joined with the United States in a unanimous U.N. Security Council vote approving the toughest economic sanctions yet against the increasingly isolated regime.

"The best signal that North Korea could give us that they're prepared to talk would be to stop these missile launches", Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said in the Philippines Monday.

The CCGA poll comes after North Korea launched an improved ballistic missile with intercontinental range late last month - Pyongyang's second missile launch in less than a month. The organization says the missiles can "contribute to tensions in Northeast Asia" and despite their ability to reach any part of North Korea, they wouldn't protect from the North's mobile missile forces and attacks from island territories.

The North's statement 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 $US1 billion (A$1.26 billion).

In a separate tweet on Tuesday, Trump praised his administration's work at containing the North Korea crisis, even as the outcast nation remained unbowed.

"We strongly urge the United States to immediately correct its relevant wrong moves to avoid affecting bilateral cooperation on the relevant issue", he said in June.

Speaking at a Security Council meeting, the USA envoy to the UN, Nikki Haley, said the new resolution is the hardest package of sanctions against any country.
