Tillerson urges more pressure on North Korea

Theresa May and US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson agreed to keep up the international pressure on North Korea at Downing Street talks

All three nations are permanent members of the U.N. Security Council which this week approved new sanctions to punish Pyongyang's September 3 atomic test, its largest to date.

But in the face of resistance from China and Russian Federation, the U.N. Security Council on Monday imposed only restrictions on the North's oil imports, among other sanctions. "Russian Federation is the largest employer of North Korean forced labor", Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said in a statement.

But opposition from China and Russian Federation forced the U.N.to approve weaker measures, although it did ban textile exports, an important source of its revenue for the North.

Britain has been a vocal supporter of tough new sanctions imposed at the United Nations Security Council after a series of North Korean nuclear tests.

Tillerson said he hoped Beijing would decide "on their own to take it up upon themselves to use that very powerful tool of oil supply to persuade North Korea to reconsider" its development of nuclear weapons and its approach to negotiations.

Tillerson says it was going to be "very difficult" to get China to agree to an oil embargo.

On Thursday, Tillerson singled out China as the supplier of most of North Korea's oil and Russian Federation as the largest employer of North Korean laborers working overseas.

This is Secretary Tillerson's second visit to the United Kingdom since taking up his post, and follows his visit in May after the Manchester terror attack.

While the Trump administration in July certified that Iran is in compliance with the nuclear accord, which was negotiated to curb the country's nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief, it argued Iran is "in default of the spirit" of the agreement.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said in a meeting with U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May late Thursday that Myanmarese violence against the Rohingya Muslims is "unacceptable" and called for a solution.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was holding talks in London Thursday on worldwide efforts to pressure North Korea over its nuclear and missile programs, and on the chaos in Libya.

"Yet another illegal missile launch by North Korea", Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson tweeted.

The Foreign Secretary will also chair a meeting on the situation in Libya with Mr Tillerson, and the French political director, as well as the Italian and Egyptian foreign ministers, and representatives from the UN and United Arab Emirates.
