Speaking with journalists in Tokyo last week after talks with Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson cited "20 years of failed approach" which he said "includes a period where the United States provided $1.35 billion in assistance to North Korea as an encouragement to take a different pathway".

The chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) declared that his country is close to testing an intercontinental ballistic missile.

Trump made the comments to reporters while departing leaving his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, where he spends nearly every weekend.

The North Korean leader was reportedly in attendance at the test of a new high-thrust engine.

North Korea, which is banned by the United Nations from conducting long-range missile tests, said it intends to launch more Earth observation satellites and what would be the country's first geostationary communications satellite.

"I won't deny that there are a few other North Koreans involved in the Kim Jong Nam murder and we will use legal channels to access them", Tan Sri Khalid was quoted as saying by state news agency Bernama.

In Seoul, Tillerson also warned that USA military action against Pyongyang was possible - a sharp divergence from China's insistence on a diplomatic approach to its neighbour, which it has long protected.

Malaysian police said Sunday that they are hunting for more North Korean suspects over the killing of the half brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

"The development and completion of a new-type high-thrust engine would help consolidate the scientific and technological foundation to match the world-level satellite delivery capability in the field of outer space development", KCNA reported.

When asked about potential military action, Tillerson said the us would prefer to avoid an armed conflict with North Korea.
