China welcomes US assurances to North Korea; calls for talks

The United States have declared that the time to talk about North Korea is over, ignoring the UN's response for Pyongyang's latest ICBM launch in favour of bomber flights and missile defence system tests. And why would they, given the joys of arcane procedural votes and their next summer vacation, this one five weeks long? The story of the 1994 framework proves this is far from impossible, but also that it will demand both careful, determined diplomacy and a commitment to honouring any promises made.

The new resolution completely bans North Korean exports of coal.

There isn't going to be a trade war with China. China's UN Ambassador Liu Jieyi called for a halt to the deployment and for any equipment in place to be dismantled.

Haley told the Security Council that U.S. -South Korean military exercises have been carried out regularly and openly for nearly 40 years and "they will continue". Tensions have mounted with Pyongyang's two recent successful tests of intercontinental ballistic missiles.

The ban comes after US student Otto Warmbier travelled to North Korea in 2015.

PRESIDENT Rodrigo Duterte has ridiculed North Korea's supreme leader Kim Jong Un for his persistence in developing a nuclear programme despite international pressure to stop it, calling him "insane, a fool and a maniac". "North Korea should forgo the path of provocation, forgo the path of further escalation". If the US suddenly saw that missile streaking across its radars, it would have limited time to respond.

The travel ban is evidence that the US sees North Korea as its enemy, the spokesman said.

North Korean vessels that are caught violating UN resolutions would be banned from entering ports in all countries, under the proposed measure. He reminded reporters that the THAAD is "strictly a defensive weapon system", with the purpose of "intercepting ballistic missiles inside or outside the atmosphere during their final, or terminal, phase of flight".

More than two dozen Asian countries will agree to use social media to counter the spread of violent extremism in the region, according to a draft statement being prepared ahead of a top security gathering on Monday. If Wheeler's allegations are true, "it's really messed up", one Fox News on-air personality told CNN. Tillerson said Tuesday that the United States does not seek a collapse of the North Korean regime or an accelerated reunification of the Korean Peninsula.

The ministers reiterated their support "for the complete, verifiable, and irreversible denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula in a special manner". While acknowledging it might take decades to achieve his Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI), Reagan said he wanted to take the first step.

For now, the South Korean foreign minister still has no final plans for a bilateral meeting in the Philippines.
