Tillerson in London to urge pressure on North Koreaā€¯

The US Secretary of State, who was in London for talks with Boris Johnson and Theresa May, said Washington would stand by Britain as it faces the "unique challenges" of leaving the EU.

"It's clear that with respect to oil, and a complete embargo on oil from the U.N. Security Council, that's going to be very hard", he said.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Thursday (Friday in Manila) urged China to use the oil it supplies to North Korea as leverage to pressure the isolated nation into reconsidering its nuclear program.

Tillerson's policy adviser Brian Hook said the Secretary of State "never misses an opportunity in bilateral, multilateral settings to raise North Korea and the need to increase pressure on North Korea".

"It's clear that with respect to oil, and a complete embargo on oil from the UN Security Council, that's going to be very hard", he said.

"These continued provocations only deepen North Korea's diplomatic and economic isolation", the secretary of state added.

The administration in July said it would utilize a broader approach to tackle Iran's "malign activities" outside of the nuclear deal, several of which the reported strategy appeared to confront.

Johnson was scheduled to host separate talks on Libya with Tillerson, de Riviere and officials from the United Nations, Italy, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates, his office said.

"I think it is a defining moment in many ways for this new emerging democracy", Tillerson said, acknowledging that Myanmar's leader Suu Kyi found herself in a "difficult and complex situation".

"This violence must stop".
