Tillerson presses China to put squeeze on North Korea

He made the remark during a joint press conference in London with British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson.

Iran is not meeting the expectations laid out in the worldwide nuclear agreement known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JPCOA), US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on Thursday.

To avoid a Chinese veto, U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley agreed to soften the resolution to reduce oil exports to Pyongyang but not cut them off completely.

"We will stand by our ally as Brexit continues to take shape".

"We're also committed to take that same spirit into the aftermath and how can we work together and co-ordinate now to complete the recovery and begin the long, long process of reconstruction in a way that is beneficial to everyone".

"United Nations Security Council resolutions, including the most recent unanimous sanctions resolution, represent the floor, not the ceiling, of the actions we should take", he said in the statement on Friday.

This morning's talks focused on the worldwide threat from North Korea and Iran acquiring nuclear weapons.

Nicolas de Riviere, the head of political affairs in the French Foreign Ministry, also joined the USA and British officials to discuss hurricane relief work in the Caribbean.

"I've seen first-hand the devastation Hurricane Irma has caused people in the Caribbean", Johnson said ahead of the talks.

The aim of the meeting - attended by the UN envoy for Libya Ghassan Salamé and representatives from France, Italy, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates - is to "discuss how to break the political deadlock in Libya", Britain's foreign ministry said.

In another meeting, Tillerson will also discuss the situation in Libya, where two competing governments and dozens of militias have jousted for power followed the 2011 overthrow of longtime dictator Moamer Kadhafi.
