Korea Sanctions at UN

US Announces Fresh Sanction Measures on N. Korea

Mr Trump - who frequently denounced China on the campaign trail - has turned to Beijing to help rein in North Korea's weapons programme.

In order to avoid World War 3 or any kind of war with North Korea, Trump has been trying to get China to do whatever they need to get their ally to give up their nuclear program and weekly missile tests.

The US Navy on May 25 conducted a "freedom of navigation" operation in the South China Sea, when the USS Dewey guided-missile destroyer sailed within 12 nautical miles of Mischief Reef in the Spratly Islands.

Liu said China was calling on all parties to implement the resolution and "strive for a peaceful settlement of the nuclear issue" by strengthening efforts to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula and promote peace and dialogue.

Mr Mattis signalled the military aggression of the North Korean regime would be a central part of discussions in Australia, warning the "current situation can not continue".

"As a Pacific nation, we have enduring interests and commitments in the Asia-Pacific region", Mattis said aboard his aircraft, referring in part to USA defense treaties with Japan, South Korea, Thailand and the Philippines.

The defence chief spoke directly to concerns America might grant concessions to China to ensure cooperation on North Korea, saying the issue was not "binary" and that the United States would continue to pressure Beijing elsewhere.

Two U.S. allies, South Korea and Japan expressed similar position.

Mattis' engagement in representing the United States in the region will be an opportunity for him "to underscore the commitment that we have to the Asia-Pacific region, and to encourage greater contributions and shared responsibility among our allies and partners across the region in pursuit of common interests, including contributions for their own self-defense", Helvey said.

One week, North Korea fires off a ballistic missile, then U.S. B-1 bombers stretch their wings over South Korea. DPRK is the initials of the North's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

While eager to work with China in dealing with North Korea, Mattis said the United States does not accept China placing weapons and other military assets on man-made islands in the South China Sea.

The other major nuclear challenge facing the Trump administration is North Korea.

The missile defense system is built to take down North Korean missile, according to te U.S. military.

The world's second-largest economy claims 90 percent of the strategic waterway, home to over 250 islands and rich natural gas reserves, but Vietnam, Brunei, Malaysia, the Philippines and Taiwan also assert ownership of certain parts.

British Deputy Ambassador to the United Nations Peter Wilson (left) and US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley (right) vote on a UNSecurity Council resolution to expand its North Korean blacklist after the Asian state's repeated missile tests, at the UN headquarters in New York, June 2, 2017.

Apart from using the US alliance to tackle its belligerent neighbor, Japan also wants the military partnership to exert influence on other parts of Asia, including the highly contested South China Sea, Inada said.

But he made no mention of USA president Donald Trump's decision to pull the U.S. out of the Paris global climate change agreement, a move that infuriated allies far and wide.

"While competition between the US and China, the world's two largest economies, is bound to occur, conflict is not inevitable", he said. In his speech, Mattis said the USA will stick to its treaty commitments to South Korea.
