Korea's top diplomat says Pyongyang wont back down

Manila: Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on Monday he had told his Russian counterpart that Moscow's meddling in the US Presidential Election had created "serious mistrust" between the two countries.

At the ARF, North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho denounced the latest UNSC resolution as a "fabrication" and threatened to retaliate against the United States.

In a joint statement issued by Asean leaders on May 1, they said the escalating tensions between the U.S. and the North Korea "can affect the peace and stability in the entire region".

During the ASEAN Regional Forum - the only remaining worldwide forum North Korea sits in outside of the United Nations - the reclusive state aired its side and urged the bloc to be "impartial and practical" in the decades-long standoff.

Meanwhile, Russia stated that it viewed the U.S. "attempts... to shift the responsibility in what is happening [on the Korean Peninsula] onto Russia and China, and to nearly blame Moscow and Beijing for "conniving in" North Korea's nuclear missile ambitions, as baseless". Prak Sokhonn said Wednesday that the adoption of a framework for the Code of Conduct (COC) in the South China Sea is a very positive step for the ASEAN-China relations. The two participated in other multilateral meetings in Manila, including one between China and the 10 ASEAN ministers.

Foreign Minister Wang Yi says the situation has reached "crisis point" as Pyongyang reacts aggressively to the United Nations export ban. "We are pro-Philippines and we are pro-ASEAN", Cayetano emphasized saying that "we are a sovereign nation and we will decide what is good for us and what strategy is good for us".

Apart from that, the statement said that the Foreign Minister also highlighted the importance of ASEAN connectivity and stated that it played an important role in the community building process and people-to-people ties. The move, if implemented by different countries to the fullest is expected to reduce North Korea's $3 billion exports by a third. "The ministers noted the significance of the UNCLOS dispute settlement regime and the Tribunal's decision in discussions among parties in their efforts to peacefully resolve their maritime disputes in the SCS". She says in the past, there's been a pattern in which China complies with sanctions after a North Korean provocation, but then slips back over time.

Philippines Foreign Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano clarified that Duterte's warm gesture does not nullify ASEAN's stance on the North Korea issue.

Wang said the two had an intensive conversation during which China urged North Korea to maintain calm.

Armed with extraordinary new U.N. sanctions, nations are racing to ensure that North Korea's biggest trading partners actually carry them out.

During their meeting, Tillerson, Kono and Bishop stressed the need to protect freedom of navigation and overflight in the South China Sea, a key shipping lane believed to be rich in marine and mineral resources.
