Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi met with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on the sidelines of a UN Security Council ministerial meeting on the Korean Peninsula's nuclear issue.

Denuclearization is the basic precondition for long-term peace and stability on the Peninsula and "what we must accomplish to safeguard the global nuclear non-proliferation regime", he said.

Russian Federation and China share view that there is only a political and diplomatic solution to North Korea's nuclear program.

The Russian Foreign Ministry, in a statement, said the support was conveyed in a U.N. Security Council ministerial meeting on the North Korea issue held in NY on Friday, at which Moscow was represented by Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov.

Positions of Russian Federation and China on the North Korean nuclear issue almost coincide, Denisov said.

Wang warned that "use of force. will only lead to bigger disasters".

"Diplomatic and financial levers of power will be backed up by a willingness to counteract North Korean aggression with military action if necessary".

"Failing to act now on the most pressing security issue in the world may bring catastrophic consequences".

"Russia supported China's proposal on "double suspension" (suspension of missile and nuclear tests by Pyongyang in exchange for termination of US-South Korean military drills near North Korean border) as a starting point for political negotiations", the statement said.

Japan's defense ministry says two Japanese F-15 fighter jets have participated in the ongoing joint exercise between the USS Carl Vinson strike group and two Japanese destroyers.

Tillerson opened the meeting with a statement calling on all member states to enforce the existing sanctions, halt or downgrade diplomatic relations with the DPRK, and increase the country's isolation with new sanctions and with a tightening of existing measures.

"And it is likely only a matter of time before North Korea develops the capability to strike the US mainland. During the (presidency of Donald) Trump North Korea has fired missiles nine times already", Denisov said.

"We are once again urging both the United States and the Republic of Korea to reconsider its expediency, and other regional states not to yield to the temptation of joining such destabilizing efforts", the deputy foreign minister said.

Other members of the Security Council that supported USA and United Kingdom included Egypt, Ethiopia, France, Italy, Sweden and Ukraine.

The U.S. envoy warned that there was no reason to think that North Korea would change its behaviour under the current multilateral sanctions framework. Additional patience will only mean acceptance of a nuclear North Korea.

Beijing has come under growing USA pressure to use its leverage as North Korea's largest trading partner and main source of food and fuel aid to compel Pyongyang to heed United Nations resolutions.
