North Korea not to surrender its nuclear arsenal

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

"We're not going to give someone a specific number of days or weeks", Mr Tillerson said.

"We will know it when we see it", the secretary of state said, according to CBS News.

In a phone call on Monday, South Korean President Moon Jae-in told Mr Trump that North Korean issues must be resolved peacefully and diplomatically.

The security conference in the Philippine capital was dominated by the rising threat posed by North Korea's rapid advances in nuclear and ballistic missile technology.

The Trump administration has also been preparing to launch a high-profile investigation of China for intellectual property violations.

The United States says it will be watching China closely to ensure it fully and continuously implements new U.N. sanctions on North Korea.

But Washington's top diplomat stopped short of giving further details on what time frame the US was considering.

He said in Manila on Sunday that Pyongyang should "not do anything unbeneficial towards the global community such as a nuclear test".

Wang also urged the US and South Korea "to stop increasing tensions" and said that all sides should return to negotiations.

On Tuesday, the Washington Post reported that according to the latest us intelligence assessment, North Korea has "successfully produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead that can fit inside its missiles, crossing a key threshold on the path to becoming a full-fledged nuclear power".

The latest United Nations resolution bans North Korean exports of coal, iron, iron ore, lead, lead ore and seafood.

"[President] Xi Jinping and U.S. President Donald Trump may have agreed that mainland China will reduce trade with North Korea when they met back in April, but according to video sent by internet users in [the border city of] Dandong, there is a never-ending stream of transportation crossing the Yalu River Bridge, and Sino Korean trade is still increasing daily", journalist Zhao Yan wrote in a commentary for RFA's Cantonese Service on.
