Germany's foreign minister is calling for direct talks with North Korea

He said the pressure campaign is built around "putting together the largest and strongest global coalition we can to send the same message to North Korea and to North Korea's neighbors, China and Russian Federation, that this is the policy of the rest of the world".

South Korea on Thursday approved a plan to provide $8 million in aid to North Korea via United Nations agencies as it seeks to handle humanitarian issues separately from political situations.

State news agency KCNA, quoting a foreign ministry statement, said the economic restrictions were an "act of hostility to physically exterminate the people of" North Korea.

The South Korean leader underscored the importance of enhancing South Korea's own defense capabilities, along with those of the joint forces of South Korea and the United States.

Mr Mattis said he and his South Korean counterpart had discussed the idea of introducing nuclear weapons to the Korean peninsula but would disclose any further details about the military plans. He would not say whether he was referring to overt combat action, a cyberattack or something more covert.

He was asked why the US, which has spent tens of billions of dollars on missile defense programs in recent decades, has not tried to intercept North Korea's rockets as they demonstrate an increasingly sophisticated missile capability. He wouldn't say, but he did let slip one interesting comment.

North Korea has often announced it needs its nuclear and missile development program as a deterrent against expansionist policies of the U.S. and its allies. North Korea has said the tests are meant to develop the capability to hit US territory with a nuclear weapon.

Moon pointed out that there are areas where South Korea and the U.S. have different views, citing the bilateral free trade agreement and sharing the upkeep of the U.S. Forces Korea.
