North Korea threatens 'thousands-fold' revenge on U.S. over sanctions

China urges North Korea to stop missile tests

Foreign ministers of the 27-member ASEAN Regional Forum, including the U.S., Japan, China, South Korea and Russian Federation, were expected to urge North Korea to "exercise self-restraint in the interest of maintaining peace, security and stability in the region and the world", according to a draft statement.

State-controlled media carried a statement from the North that promised the move would never force the country to negotiate over its nuclear program - or to give up its nuclear drive.

The sanctions aim to cut North Korea's estimated $3 billion (£2.3 billion) in annual exports by a third and all countries are now banned from importing North Korean coal, iron, lead and seafood products.

During an hour-long phone call Sunday night, the White House says President Donald Trump and South Korea's president agreed to work together to reign in North Korea.

Adding to the drumbeat of criticism, the commander of US forces in the Pacific, Adm. Harry Harris, said Monday that the code of conduct negotiations with an "aggressive" China will be a key challenge for the region. "It is all about how we see their attitude in approaching a dialogue with us".

Cayetano's meeting with Ri came a few days after ASEAN foreign ministers issued a statement calling on the DPRK "to comply fully with its obligations under all relevant United Nations Security Council Resolutions and global laws and for all concerned parties to exercise self-restraint so as not to further aggravate the situation in the Korean Peninsula".

China's foreign minister Wang Yi met his North Korean counterpart Ri Hong-Yo before a major regional security forum being hosted by the 10-nation association of Southeast Asian nations.

Speaking at a security forum in Manila, Washington's top diplomat said Kim Jong-Un's regime must halt ballistic missile tests if it wanted to talk to the United States about resolving the standoff. "The sanctions will have an economic impact but little effect on the strategic intent to develop ballistic missiles".

The lengthy statement was the first reaction from North Korea since the UN Security Council resolution proposed by the United States was passed on Saturday, with the backing of China and Russian Federation.

NORTH Korea has threatened "thousands-fold" revenge against the United States for banning exports worth $1billion following its intercontinental ballistic launches.

Tillerson later met with Kono and South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung Wha, where they underscored the important roles of China, Russia and ASEAN in pressuring North Korea, a Japanese official said. During the meeting, Kang explained President Moon Jae-in's Berlin Declaration and the inter-Korean military talks and Red Cross talks that were proposed on July 17.

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