Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Friday that if America's "peaceful pressure" campaign against North Korea doesn't work, then the US won't "have many good options left".

South Korea's president reiterated he's willing to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un even as he condemned the North's first intercontinental ballistic missile test-launch this week as a "reckless" move that incurred punishment by the global community.

North Korea said it tested an ICBM and the United States said that was likely true. "I call it the peaceful pressure campaign".

North Korea's nuclear threat will no doubt be on the minds of both Trump and Chinese President Xi Jingping when they meet on the sidelines of the G-20 economic summit in Hamburg this week. Any country that hosts North Korean guest workers, provides any economic or military benefits, or fails to fully implement U.N. Security Council resolutions is aiding and abetting a risky regime. United Nations diplomats said the U.S. had given China a draft sanctions resolution.

"Our self-restraint holds, and diplomatic efforts remain underway as we speak, " he said, adding, however, that diplomatic and economic efforts remained the tools of choice to convince North Korea to stop its nuclear and missile programmes.

The ICBM test on Tuesday raised debate and concern worldwide, and USA officials said the two-stage missile had a range capable of reaching Alaska.

During the Security Council meeting, Russia's deputy United Nations ambassador, Vladimir Safronkov, claimed that data Russia's Defense Ministry has collected shows that the North fired a mid-range missile, not an ICBM. Diplomats said on Friday that negotiations on the statement had stalled. "We will use them if we must, but we prefer not to have to go in that direction". North Korea said it could carry a large nuclear warhead.

"Something has to be done about it", Trump argued ominously during the brief public portion of his meeting with Xi.

Abe told Trump and Moon that "dialogue for the sake of dialogue with North Korea is meaningless, and at this juncture it is essential to put pressure on North Korea", Maruyama said.

While China and Russian Federation are unlikely to help us with North Korea, we should always keep an eye out for diplomatic opportunities.

Kim Jong Un also took a turn to mock Trump.
