U.S. urges China, Russia to act after North Korea missile launch

The US delegation swept into No 10 this morning without a moment's pause to set our their priorities for the day's meetings

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson acknowledged Thursday it will be hard to put an oil embargo on North Korea unless China cooperates.

The trio will also discuss fresh ways to respond to North Korea's latest nuclear test after the United Nations security council approved new sanctions against Pyongyang.

Tillerson said the provision was aimed exclusively at China because it supplies neighboring North Korea with most of its oil, as well as most of its trade.

"Russian Federation is the largest employer of North Korean forced labour", Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said in a statement.

"I think it's clear that with respect to oil and a complete embargo on oil from the U.N. Security Council, that's going to be very hard", Tillerson added, according to an official transcript.

Johnson said sanctions were a way of "maximizing the pressure on North Korea to reach a diplomatic solution", calling for the "complete and irreversible" denuclearization of the Korean peninsular.

On the Iran nuclear deal, which is viewed sceptically in Washington, May was "underlining its importance in preventing Iran from procuring nuclear weapons", the spokesman said.

Tillerson cited the preface of the nuclear deal, which calls on Iran to contribute positively to regional security.

"That is a very powerful tool that has been used in the past, and we hope that China will not reject that", Tillerson said.

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

The administration in July said it would utilize a broader approach to tackle Iran's "malign activities" outside of the nuclear deal, several of which the reported strategy appeared to confront.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson arrives at 10 Downing Street in London, Britain, September 14, 2017. This persecution must stop.

"It is vital for her now to make clear that this is an abomination and that those people will be allowed back" in the country, he added.
