Southeast Asia foreign ministers deliver message to North Korea: Let's talk

FM Çavuşoğlu, Russia's Lavrov discuss Syria, bilateral ties at ASEAN summit

Wang said on Monday night that with the joint efforts of China and ASEAN countries, the situation in the South China Sea has been stabilized, and pragmatic cooperation has unfolded.

President Donald Trump is demanding full and speedy implementation of the new penalties.

Opponents also say it is being pushed through at a time when the United States, long seen as a crucial buffer against China's maritime assertiveness, is distracted by other issues and providing no real clarity about its security strategy in Asia, thus weakening Asean's bargaining position.

In the printed version of the speech, Ri said that the entire USA mainland is within firing range of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, which is North Korea's official name.

"I told him that [the two offers for talks] are an urgent matter that should be carried out immediately with any political agenda put aside and asked him to proactively react", she was quoted as saying.

In what two diplomats involved said was another victory for Beijing on Sunday, ASEAN members declined to say in their joint statement that the hoped-for code of conduct with China be "legally binding".

They agreed that North Korea "poses a grave and growing direct threat" and the two leaders were committed to fully implement the latest round of United Nations sanctions, the White House said in a statement.

Tillerson, who previously has said the United States does not seek regime change in Pyongyang, reiterated his hope that eventually the Korea Peninsula will rid itself of nuclear weapons. The meeting is expected to be attended by 14 other ASEAN dialogue partners, including China, Russia and North Korea.

Association of Southeast Asian Nations foreign ministers failed to promptly issue a joint communique after their annual gathering Saturday due to a disagreement over whether to include criticism, even indirectly, of China's increasingly assertive moves in the contested territories and the way to express concern over North Korea's intercontinental ballistic missile tests, two Southeast Asian diplomats said Sunday.

Zhang Baohui, a mainland security expert based in Hong Kong, said China questions whether Singapore is honest when it says it didn't want to choose between the United States and China.
