Tillerson urges North Korea to resume talks

"To that end, the Security Council demanded the Democratic People's Republic of Korea conduct no further nuclear and ballistic missile tests", the council said, adding that it was ready to impose further sanctions on the country.

Trump later said he would be "honoured" to meet the North's leader, Kim Jong Un, under the right conditions.

"Whenever something unusual happens it is the stereotype way of the United States and the hostile forces that kick off noisy anti-DPRK campaign deliberately linking with DPRK", Kim In Ryong, the deputy ambassador, said at a press conference Friday.

Elaborating on the benefits that North Korea will be provided if it scraps its nuclear programme, Tillerson said if the DPRK cooperates, then some companies can invest in the nation. "You have to pick a side".

North Korea will never abandon its "nuclear deterrence for self- defence and pre-emptive strike capability" even if the US ratchets up sanctions and pressure "to the utmost", Kim said.

"The U.S. should mind that the DPRK nuclear striking capability will be strengthened and developed at a rapidly high speed as long as the U.S. insists (on) its anti-DPRK policy, nasty nuclear threats and blackmails, sanction and pressure", Kim said.
