ASEAN needs Code of Conduct in East Sea soon: Spokeswoman

China and ASEAN to maintain stability in South China Sea

There was no direct reaction from North Korea to Tillerson's remarks but in a statement after the USA secretary of state made his comments, Pyongyang responded robustly to the new sanctions by saying it was ready to teach the United States a "severe lesson" if it attacked.

The meeting of foreign ministers of the 10-member state ASEAN and Japan here over the weekend discussed critical regional issues such as situations on Korean Peninsula and South China Sea, said Japanese Foreign Ministry Deputy Press Secretary Toshihide Ando.

The U.N. resolution bans North Korean exports of coal, iron, iron ore, lead, lead ore and seafood. All the ministers have acknowledged Beijing's crucial economic and trade relations with each of their countries, the diplomat said.

Moon was also cited as saying there was a need to show North Korea the door to dialogue is still open, should Pyongyang give up its nuclear program.

He also said, "Of course, we would like to urge other parties like the United States and South Korea to stop increasing tensions".

Diplomats say ASEAN's requirement of consensus in decision-making allows China to pressure some members to disagree with proposals it dislikes.

Trump tweeted that he was very happy with the sanctions, which were unanimously approved by the United Nations Security Council two days ago.

"The reality is that the United States is now vulnerable to North Korea's nuclear-armed missiles - and has no choice but to live with that reality", nonproliferation expert Jeffrey Lewis wrote in an opinion piece for The New York Times Thursday.

The United States has remained technically at war with North Korea since the 1950-53 Korean conflict ended in an armistice rather than a peace treaty. (Mr. Ri, do you have plans to meet with Minister Kang Kyung-wha?) "We have no plans to meet her".

Before Tillerson's trip, the US had said he had no plans to interact with North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho, who was spotted at the gala smiling and toasting with the other foreign ministers.

Wang however said there would be a precondition for the official start of the code of conduct consultations.

"It doesn't mean all differences have gone away, but by focusing on the overall dynamics of the relationship, we can achieve positive progress, confidence and move forward".

"Ultimately, President Moon Jae-in is a strong believer on dialogue and wants to get things on a different track with North Korea", said John Delury, an associate professor at Yonsei University's Graduate School of worldwide Studies in Seoul.

The ministers "strongly call upon" North Korea, as a member of the ASEAN Regional Forum, to help "maintain the Asia Pacific as a region of lasting peace, stability, friendship and prosperity", the ministers said in their statement.

"There were views that, how can we hear them out or confront them (North Korea) if they're not there?" he told reporters after a late-night discussion with his ASEAN counterparts. In a front page commentary, the overseas edition of the ruling Communist Party's official People's Daily said North Korea's open flouting of United Nations rules with its missile launches meant that it had to be punished, but sanctions had to be targeted.
