North Korea news US Rex Tillerson World War 3

China, Pyongyang's sole ally, and Russian Federation argue that sanctions alone will not push North Korea to change course and want to step up diplomatic efforts to achieve a solution.

Kim In-kyung has more.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson talks to reporters after a U.N. Security Council ministerial on North Korea at the United Nations in New York City on Friday.

North Korea's latest missile test, which U.S. experts say indicated an increasing technological sophistication, did not demonstrate an imminent threat of nuclear attack on the United States, Defence Secretary Jim Mattis said today.

The United States clashed with North Korea at a specially convened UN Security Council meeting to discuss Pyongyang's nuclear program.

"North Korea must earn its way back to the table", Tillerson said.

The UN Security Council meeting on Friday is aimed at finding peaceful ways to pressure North Korea to halt its nuclear and ballistic missile tests, and denuclearize the Korean Peninsula.

Pyongyang's most recent test launch on November 28 "has not yet shown to be a capable threat against us right now", Mattis said during a press briefing at the Pentagon.

"The meeting today is none other than a desperate measure plotted by the USA being terrified by the incredible might of our Republic that has successfully achieved the great historic cause of completing the state nuclear force, cause of building a rocket power through the great November event".

He added that the Trump administration and the global community would continue to pressurize North Korean leader Pyongyang.
