North Korea says no negotiations over its nukes

US offers N. Korea direct talks if missile tests stop doesn’t mention nuclear testing

Speaking at a regional security forum in Manila on Monday, Wang said the new resolution showed China and the worldwide community's opposition to North Korea's continued missile tests, the foreign ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.

As the US and its allies welcome the latest United Nations sanctions against North Korea as a good, incremental step to increase pressure on the Kim Jong Un regime, a question looms: Will this cause economic pressure strong enough to change Pyongyang's behavior?

Mr Trump later took to social media to hail the vote, thanking Russian Federation and China in a Twitter post for backing the sanctions that either could have halted with their UN veto, adding that he was "very happy and impressed with 15-0 United Nations vote on North Korea sanctions".

The U.N. Security Council unanimously approved new sanctions on North Korea Saturday, including banning exports worth over $1 billion.

He said Washington would not "specify a specific number of days or weeks" before deciding North Korea had indeed halted its tests. A statement from the White House says Trump and Moon "affirmed that North Korea poses a grave and growing direct threat to the United States, South Korea, and Japan, as well as to most countries around the world". "Very big financial impact!" "We warn North Korea not to test or misunderstand the will of the South Korea-U.S. alliance". The new United Nations resolution also calls for greater scrutiny of North Korea's legitimate diplomatic activities, which have played a role in North Korea's illicit engagements.

REX TILLERSON, U.S. Secretary of State: This is really about the spirit of these talks, and they can demonstrate that they're ready to sit with a spirit of finding a way forward in these talks by no longer conducting these missile tests.

Even as the top United States diplomat seeks to ratchet up the pressure, he threw an olive branch to North Korea during remarks to the press on Tuesday: "We hope that at some point, they will begin to understand that and that we would like to sit and have a dialogue with them about the future that will give them the security they seek", he said. At the same time, a USA plan to punish China for alleged unfair trade practice was postponed.

Ms Kang urged her northern counterpart to accept Seoul's offers of military talks to lower tensions on the divided peninsula, and for discussions on a new round of reunions for divided families, according to South Korea's Yonhap news agency.

Rappler reported Cayetano admitted that "there has to be a person, a group, an organization that will look into the concerns of North Korea, which feels that their existence is threatened".

Tillerson told reporters that he and Kang would be discussing the next steps to take on North Korea.

In Phnom Penh, Cambodian Foreign Minister Prak Sokhonn said he called on the North to soften its stance during a meeting with its foreign minister, Ri Yong Ho, in Manila.

A top USA security official threatened the North with other options including a "preventive war".

The ministers met in the Philippines' capital on the sidelines of the ASEAN forum.

They also promised to strengthen their communications to better respond to the North's nuclear threats.
