The meeting between the two Asian nations was hours after the United Nations Security Council unanimously agreed to new sanctions that includes banning North Korean exports and limiting investments in the country.

Tillerson reportedly also stated that the United States would not content itself with the UN's adoption of the new sanctions resolution against North Korea but would continue to pressure China, Russia and other related countries to implement the sanctions.

The statement says the latest sanctions infringe on North Korea's sovereignty and it vowed to take "righteous action".

He went on to encourage the United States and South Korea not to increase the tension.

Adding to the drumbeat of criticism, the commander of USA 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.

He added: 'So it is all about how we see their attitude towards approaching a dialogue with us.

United States willing to talk to N. Korea: Tillerson
South Korea in particular is taking steps, with support from the USA , to defend itself against the threat. If we know about it, it's going to be sunk because opposition will grow to it", said Thayer.

"We're not going to give someone a specific number of days or weeks", he said during a briefing at the Association of Southeast Asian Nations in Manila.

In a flurry of diplomatic activity, North Korea's foreign minister, Ri Yong-ho, had a day earlier met with Mr Wang, his Russian counterpart, and even briefly met with his South Korean counterpart after the two bumped into one another waiting for an ASEAN event. There's a lot of analysts that I've spoken to that say that this really looks like a play to go after North Korea's economy as a whole, in a way, that sanctions previously haven't targeted before. "The sanctions will have an economic impact but little effect on the strategic intent to develop ballistic missiles".

The North Korean statement on Monday appeared to more firmly reject talks.

The resolution "condemns in the strongest terms" North Korea's July 4 and July 28 missile tests, and adds new individuals and entities, including the Foreign Trade Bank, a state-owned lender that acts as North Korea's "primary foreign exchange bank", to a United Nations sanctions list.

"Do not violate the U.N.'s decision or provoke the global society's goodwill by conducting missile launches or nuclear test", Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Sunday.

The new sanctions ban exports of coal, iron, lead, and seafood; halt North Korea's guest worker programs and blacklist over a dozen individuals and entities, including the country's primary foreign exchange bank. The Blue House had previously announced that since North Korea test launched the Hwasong-14 intercontinental ballistic missile on July 28, the Blue House has been in consultation with the United States about increasing the weight of the warheads on ballistic missiles with a range of 800 km from the current limit of 500 kg to 1 ton.

It was the first time cabinet-level officials from the two Koreas had met since the South's President Moon Jae-in took power in May.
