Southeast Asian nations unhappy over North Korea's missile tests, says Cambodia

South Korean FM Open to Meeting North Korean Counterpart

Yi said in order to protect the worldwide non-proliferation system and regional peace and stability, China will as before fully and strictly properly implement the entire contents of the relevant resolution.

"I told the foreign minister that we have not made a decision about how we would respond to the Russian request to remove United States diplomatic personnel", Tillerson said.

Xi said that since their dialogue partnership was built in 1991, China and ASEAN have stayed true to cooperation and development, their political mutual trust has deepened and their pragmatic cooperation has seen fruitful outcomes.

China "hopes North Korea can echo this signal from the United States", Wang added.

A Chinese foreign ministry official said they had "already met".

The contending states should clarify their claims peacefully in accordance with a 1982 maritime treaty and global law, according to the three, who met on the sidelines of annual meetings of Asia-Pacific foreign ministers in Manila, including those from China and Russian Federation.

They said in a joint statement: "The ministers voiced their strong opposition to coercive unilateral actions that could alter the status quo and increase tensions".

"Overall, Vietnam's contributions to the AMM 50 demonstrate the country's proactivity, high sense of responsibility and maturity in regional integration, thus enhancing our role and prestige in the ASEAN and in ties with it's partners", Deputy FM Nguyen Quoc Dung said.

The final communique from Asean foreign ministers included an emphasis on "the importance of non-militarization and self restraint in the conduct of all activities by claimants and all other states".

Secretary of State Tillerson, Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop and Japan's chief diplomat Taro Kono also called on the parties to the dispute to comply with the United Nations arbitral ruling a year ago that invalidated most of China's expansive claims in the area.

Mattis said the USA and its allies would win any arms race or conflict. The last one, as Reuters recalls, involved some Singaporean armored vehicles getting impounded in Hong Kong on their way home from training in Taiwan.

Eugene Tan, an associate professor of law at the Singapore Management University, said there could be differences between the countries once Singapore takes over the ASEAN chairmanship.

The Philippines also avoided a pointed reference to the 2016 United Nations arbitral ruling that favored Manila over China. In April, Vice President Pence met with ASEAN permanent representative and the ASEAN Secretariat, and announced that President Trump will travel to Manila for the U.S. -ASEAN and East Asia Summits later this year.

Zhang Baohui, a mainland security expert based in Hong Kong, said China questions whether Singapore is honest when it says it didn't want to choose between the United States and China.

"We are not pro-China, pro-US, pro-Japan".
