Tillerson presses China to put squeeze on North Korea

Tillerson presses China to put squeeze on North Korea

Tillerson also met with British Prime Minister Theresa May and discussed the threat posed to the Mideast region by Iran and the conflict in Syria.

The US hopes the trip will give "new energy and focus to mediation efforts led by the United Nations", Hook said.

"We can never tolerate that North Korea trampled on the worldwide community's strong, united resolve toward peace that has been shown in UN resolutions and went ahead again with this outrageous act", Abe told reporters in the aftermath of the launch.

Touching upon the Brexit process, he added that "the U.S.is a steadfast ally and will stand by Britain as Brexit continues to take shape". We look forward to continuing this alliance'.

"United Nations Security Council resolutions, including the most recent unanimous sanctions resolution, represent the floor, not the ceiling, of the actions we should take", he said in the statement on Friday.

Last month, North Korea fired another ballistic missile from a similar area near the capital that flew over Hokkaido before splashing down into the ocean, as well.

After Mrs May dropped into the No 10 meeting, her spokesman told reporters: '(They) touched on the Iran nuclear deal, the PM underlining its importance in preventing Iran from procuring nuclear weapons.

'They agreed on the importance of the worldwide community continuing to work together to put pressure on the regime'.

The Trump administration sought an embargo on oil imports to North Korea at the U.N. Security Council this week in response to the North's most powerful nuclear test to date.

Mr Johnson will hold joint talks with Mr Tillerson and French political director Nicolas de Riviere about the aftermath of Hurricane Irma.

"I've seen first-hand the devastation Hurricane Irma has caused people in the Caribbean", Johnson said ahead of the talks.

The Libya meeting is an opportunity to discuss how to break the political deadlock in Libya, and to build momentum in support of the efforts of the UN Secretary General and his Special Representative.
