North Korea says no negotiations over its nukes

  • Rex Tillerson

Mr Brownlee is now in Manila, Philippines where he's attending ASEAN-New Zealand Ministerial consultations, the East Asia Summit Foreign Ministers' Meeting and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations Regional Forum.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says the approval of new United Nations sanctions targeting North Korea over its nuclear and ballistic missile programs is a "very good outcome". "We'll decide what is good for us, we will decide what strategies are good for us because we are a sovereign nation", Cayetano said. "ASEAN stands ready to play a constructive role in contributing to peace and stability in the Korean Peninsula". In this regard, the ministers welcomed the unanimous adoption of UNSC Resolution 2371 on August 5 which imposes a total ban on certain North Korean exports.

The diplomatic wrangling sought to build on the sweeping new North Korea sanctions passed by the U.N. Security Council a day earlier - the strongest in a generation, the USA said.

On Korea, a draft statement by ASEAN condemning the North's missile launches is being objected to by Cambodia, a close friend of China, since it does not include a call for ending western military provocations.

"Singapore is not in a position to tell other countries what to do in regards to their sovereignty but I think we can expect Singapore to take a very robust approach to dealings with China in its capacity as the ASEAN chair".

Tillerson, who also separately met with Wang and Lavrov, said Washington would consider talks if Pyongyang halts its missile tests, while refusing to give a specific time frame on how long it might need to refrain. Beforehand, he had called at the Security Council for countries to cut diplomatic and financial ties with Pyongyang. All countries are now banned from importing North Korean coal, iron, lead and seafood products, and from letting in more North Korean laborers whose remittances help fund Kim Jong Un's regime.

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".

The foreign ministers of 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations stressed "the importance of non-militarisation and self-restraint" for all activities in the South China Sea by all countries, according to a statement released on Sunday, which summed up their meeting the day before.

Tillerson says he and the South Korean diplomat plan to discuss the sanctions during their meeting, along with next steps to pressure the North.

The rapprochement between President Rodrigo Duterte and his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, defused a tense standoff between the Asian neighbors last year at the disputed Scarborough Shoal, where China allowed Filipinos back to fish in October as years of thorny relations began to brighten.

The US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is also at the forum, where he spoke about North Korea.

On Saturday, South Korean Foreign Minister Tang Kyung-Wha said he would like to meet his North Korean counterpart Ri Yong Ho and tell him that they "must have a dialogue and that the North must stop the continuous provocations".

Wang said the two had an intensive conversation during which China urged North Korea to maintain calm.
