Japan, South Korea and United States plan worldwide push to denuclearize North

This year's forum came amid increasing pressure on the North following its two intercontinental ballistic missile tests, which prompted the Security Council to adopt a fresh sanctions resolution Saturday that includes a complete ban on its exports of coal, deemed to be its main source of hard currency.

The North said it will take an "action of justice", without elaborating.

"A lot of people are making a lot out of the fact that China voted for these sanctions...basically what it boils down to is China is not going to let North Korea be brought to its knees to force North Korea to the negotiating table", said Person. Four further atomic tests since then have honed its capability to miniaturize a nuclear device.

Sanctions against North Korea were unilaterally decided by the United Nations' security council on Saturday.

Ri also said the North "is ready to teach the USA a severe lesson with its nuclear strategic force... should the US pounce upon [North Korea] with military force at last". Tillerson has no plans to sit down with North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho at the event.

Wang's meeting with North Korea's Ri started off cordially, with Ri smiling as the two shook hands.

"The North Korean program remains an unconstrained one with neither sanctions nor an operational diplomatic agreement holding it back", John Park, the director of the Korea Working Group at Harvard Kennedy School, told Bloomberg News.

Wang earlier said it was important that Ri was attending the Manila meetings so he could hear "suggestions" and present his own views.

"It's not that easy but it is a direction we need to work together towards", Wang said of the six-country talks, which used to be hosted by China and were stopped in 2009.

South Korean Minister of Foreign Affairs Kang Kyung-wha held a press conference at a hotel in downtown Manila that morning to discuss the forum's outcome prior to its closing ceremony later that day.

"Neither shall we flinch an inch from the road to bolstering up the nuclear forces chosen by ourselves unless the hostile policy and nuclear threat of the USA against the DPRK are fundamentally eliminated", he said, according to a separate transcript released by his delegation.

Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono told the media on Monday evening that the issues on North Korea and the South China Sea garnered lengthy statements from ministers during the ARF.

President Donald Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-in are sharing their concerns about North Korea. This is why the U.S. is concentrating its diplomatic efforts on China in its bid to stop North Korea's tests.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says the best signal North Korea could give that it's prepared for negotiations with the U.S. would be to halt its missile launches.

Kim Jong Un's government said it would take an "action of justice" in response to the sanctions that were "fabricated by the US", Korean Central News Agency reported on Monday, without elaborating.

Diplomats say much of the burden of enforcing United Nations sanctions on North Korea rests with China because it serves as a lifeline for its defiant neighbor. "The U.S. will be watching China's implementation closely".
