United States envoy says 'actual dialogue' wanted with N. Korea

Leaders hope widespread economic and diplomatic sanctions will pressure the North to end its nuclear program. "We've said from the diplomatic side we're ready to talk anytime North Korea would like to talk, and we're ready to have the first meeting without precondition", Tillerson said on December 13. His offer survived only a few days before being taken back at a United Nations special ministerial meeting.

China - the North's sole ally and economic lifeline - and Russian Federation responded positively to Tillerson's remarks, even after the White House appeared to undermine his proposal by saying US President Donald Trump's "views on North Korea have not changed". "The pressure campaign must and will continue until denuclearisation is achieved".

"Our communication channels remain open", he added.

Tillerson repeated that "we do not seek, nor do we want, war with North Korea".

With the characteristic bombast of his country's rhetoric, Ja dismissed the Council as "tool" of the United States, which he said is "terrified by the incredible might of our republic". He announced that Japan has just ordered the assets of 19 North Korean entities to be frozen. "They know where to walk through that door when they want to talk", he told reporters.

He asserted that his country could "fully guarantee" that there had been no "illegal transfer of nuclear weapons, its technology and weapon-grade nuclear materials".

Guterres called on Friday for communication channels between North Korea and South Korea to be restored, as well as between the military in the region, in order to lower the risk of misapprehensions that may lead to a conflict.

The sanctions are estimated to decrease North Korea's export revenue by $2.3 billion.

Tuesday, Tillerson had said he was willing to start talks with North Korea without preconditions. They alone are responsible for these tensions.

China's envoy expressed concern about a hardening of positions, saying the current crisis "hardly makes one optimistic".

China's deputy United Nations ambassador, Wu Haitao, called for early resumption of dialogue. There is "a possibility for negotiation and the option of use of force is unacceptable".

It would also have to demonstrate a test of an airborne nuclear ICBM and then launch a missile from a submarine near the US.

"North Korea's growing capabilities reflect a direct threat to our security and the security of the entire world", Tillerson said.

The UN's political affairs chief, Jeffrey Feltman, returned at the weekend from talks in Pyongyang - the first visit to the North by a high-ranking UN official since 2011.

Tillerson said Friday that diplomatic discussions must be preceded by a "sustained cessation" of the North's threatening behavior. He is determined to add his country to the roster of nuclear-armed nations, if only for protection.
