US' Tillerson arrives in Philippines for ASEAN Forum

China Calls for Mutual Respect in Strengthening Relations with US

Cayetano told reporters Monday foreign ministers and key partners will likely discuss North Korea's missile tests in the ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF).

It has urged North Korea to halt future ballistic missile and nuclear tests, while also calling on the US and South Korea to cease military exercises.

"But in order to protect the global non-proliferation system and regional peace and stability, China will, as before, fully and strictly implement the entire contents of the relevant resolution".

Wang also urged the USA and South Korea "to stop increasing tensions" and said that all sides should return to negotiations.

The US-drafted resolution imposed a full ban on North Korea's exports of coal, iron, iron ore, lead, and lead ore, as well as fish and seafood.

LISA DESJARDINS: For his part, President Trump spoke with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, later tweeting: "Very happy and impressed with 15-0 United Nations vote on North Korea sanctions".

"After many years of failure, countries are coming together to finally address the dangers posed by North Korea. We must be tough & decisive!" he wrote.

On Saturday, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted Resolution 2371, tightening sanctions against North Korea.

LISA DESJARDINS: And again singled out the United States.


Tillerson is offering his most specific outline to date of what preconditions the US has for talks with Pyongyang.

Meanwhile, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who is in the Philippines to attend the annual ASEAN summit, has no plans to hold talks with Ri, his aides have said.

In an interview with MSNBC from last week broadcast on Saturday, US National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster said Trump was not ruling out a "preventive war" to stop North Korea from being able to threaten the US.

Wang said Tillerson's "Four Nos" promise was a positive signal.

"It's quite clear in terms of there being no daylight between the worldwide community as to the expectation that North Korea will take steps to achieve all of my objectives, which is a denuclearised Korean peninsula", he told reporters on Monday.

The statements from Pyongyang come after its first direct statement on Monday regarding the United Nations sanctions package, criticising those measures and threatening to retaliate against the US. North Korea still has other weapons in the works, as the canisters for a potential solid-fueled ICBM rolled out during a military parade in April demonstrated.

Both sanctions against North Korea's nuclear and missile programmes and resumption of the six-party talks are important and neither should be neglected, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Sunday. Kang is thanking the US for consulting with South Korea on the sanctions. -South Korean military drills that it views as an invasion rehearsal. "It will curtail the North's financial sources for nuclear and ballistic missile activities and send the global community's clear message to the regime that a nuclear-armed North is not acceptable", the ministry said. Nine North Korean officials and four organizations were added to the sanctions list for having supported the regime's nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

South Korea reiterated further resolutions against Pyongyang could follow if it did not pull back.

"They're not self-sufficient in building nuclear bombs and ICBMs, so these sanctions are a big threat", Byrne said.
