Tillerson in London to urge 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

Friday's test comes just days after the passage by the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) of resolution 2375, which targets North Korea's textile industry, applies caps on the transfer of refined petroleum products and natural gas to the country, and blacklists three major DPRK government bodies.

To avoid a Chinese veto, U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley agreed to soften the resolution to reduce oil exports to Pyongyang but not cut them off completely.

The unanimous adoption of the resolution was still significant because it sent a message to the North Korean regime that the global community views its weapons programs seriously, he said.

The US secretary of state told reporters that Iran was not meeting the expectations laid out in the worldwide nuclear agreement that was reached back in 2015.

The United States will stand by Britain as it exits the European Union, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on Thursday after a meeting with British foreign minister Boris Johnson in London.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson acknowledged Thursday that it will be hard to enforce an oil embargo on North Korea unless China cooperates.

Baldwin and Johnson sign on to opposing health care bills
In effect, this would mean less money for expansion (mostly blue) states, and more money for non-expansion (mostly red) states. It takes us off the path to single payer health care - which would be a disaster - and puts us on a path toward local control.

US President Donald Trump has yet to comment on the launch but according to the White House has been briefed.

"We call on all nations to take new measures against the Kim regime", Tillerson said in a statement, referring to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

Libya and North Korea were expected to be the focus of talks on global security, after which Tillerson and Johnson were scheduled to hold a joint news conference.

"These continued provocations only deepen North Korea's diplomatic and economic isolation".

It is the second time in less than a month that North Korea launched a missile that flew over Japan.

The aim of the meeting - attended by the UN envoy for Libya Ghassan Salamé and representatives from France, Italy, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates - is to "discuss how to break the political deadlock in Libya", Britain's foreign ministry said.
