China appeals for new North Korea talks

"We've had the US-China Comprehensive Economic Dialogue here in Washington DC recently that discussed the full gamut of trade and investment and economic issues, and that discussion is continuing and we've got a number of hundred-day plans in the works to negotiate resolution and show concrete progress in that relationship", the official said.

Across the Pacific Ocean from North Korea, in California, the U.S. Air Force said a test Wednesday of an unarmed intercontinental ballistic missile was successful.

The new raft of measures would be the seventh set of United Nations sanctions imposed on North Korea since it first carried out a nuclear test in 2006, but these have failed to compel Pyongyang to give up its missile programme.

Kishida met with Tillerson and Wang in April in NY.

The United Nations' Security Council approved sanctions Saturday that could cut as much as $1 billion each year from North Korean exports.

Another reading of the drills is as a signal for Pyongyang to simmer down, after North Korea launched another ballistic missile on July 28, boasting that it could now reach the entirety of the USA mainland.

"When they start to excavate the gas and all, I tell you, it's going to be just like a joint venture", Duterte said.

North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho will attend Monday's meeting. The U.S. had called both countries "economic enablers" of Kim's regime after the second ICBM test.

Kang said that South Korea has been in close consultation with the USA on the move under way at the council, saying, "Those measures to be contained will likely have highly effective sanctions elements". "This is the most stringent set of sanctions on any country in a generation".

The draft communique, still to be expanded with inputs from other ASEAN members, also doesn't mention concern about China's artificial islands, where a missile defense system has reportedly been installed.

"While the USA exerts pressure on China's neighbors by means of United Nations sanctions on North Korea, it is encouraging these countries to be closer to Washington and meanwhile balancing China's expanding political and economic presence in the surrounding region", the article read.

Haley personally thanked the Chinese for their help.

Beijing has declared an area the size of West Virginia off-limits to civilian vessels, ahead of extensive three-day naval exercises near the coast of North Korea.

Haley described the measure as a "gut punch" that will result in "huge implications".

A spokesperson for the Foreign ministry said: "The act of the U.S. which is so fond of rigging up sanctions law and brandishing the sanctions club against other sovereign states is no better than that of a hooligan which can not be allowed by worldwide law".

During their meeting, Cayetano and his ASEAN counterparts also discussed preparations for the upcoming related ministerial meetings and the Informal ASEAN Ministerial Meeting at the sidelines of the United Nations (UN) General Assembly meeting in NY in September.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was expected to galvanise condemnation of North Korea and call for a "serious discussion" on suspending the country from the ASEAN Regional Forum as part of efforts to further isolate Pyongyang.

Ri is scheduled to arrive in Manila early Sunday morning.
