A North Korean delegation led by its vice foreign minister flew to Manila last week and told Philippine officials of their hope for a "favourable environment" when Pyongyang's top diplomat attends the ARF meetings in Manila, said the officials, who spoke to AP on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly.

But Tillerson said the USA does not think productive talks would result if North Korea came with the intention of maintaining their nuclear weapons. "We would like to sit and have a dialogue about the future". "If thousands die, they're going to die over there - and he's told me that to my face".

The Obama administration was also willing to dialogue if Pyongyang abandons its nuclear weapons program, which was not successful despite efforts to get North Korea to the roundtable.

Following the ICBM launch Trump - not for the first time - expressed his frustration about what he views as China's failure to pressure North Korea to change its behavior. All the USA passports are declared as invalid for travelling to North Korea.

"I am very disappointed in China", he tweeted.

Tensions between the two countries have heightened in recent months following North Korea's refusal to meet demands from the U.S. to stop its efforts to develop a nuclear-tipped missile capable of hitting the United States.

He also said China "attached great importance" to Mr Tillerson's comments this week that the U.S. does not seek to topple North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, and that dialogue with Pyongyang may come at some point. "You can stop North Korea, militarily or diplomatically", he said on NBC's "Today Show". A White House statement said Trump and Abe agreed that North Korea "poses a grave and growing direct threat" to the U.S., Japan, South Korea and other countries, and they committed their governments to increasing diplomatic and economic pressure on Pyongyang. "When Pyongyang can feel this goodwill, it will have fewer motives to develop nuclear and missile technology". The picture above from 2013 shows leader Kim Jong Un ordering strategic rocket forces to be on standby to strike US and South Korean targets at any time.

In a sham trial, North Korea convicted Warmbier of a "hostile act" against the state for allegedly stealing a propaganda banner from a hotel. "We do not seek an accelerated reunification of the peninsula", he told reporters in Washington on Tuesday. He was sentenced to 15 years of hard labor, and was never heard from again until North Korea sent him back to the U.S.in June in a coma.

However, Mr Tillerson took a more diplomatic approach, saying that "only the North Koreans are to blame for this situation".
