"I don't want to include it".

Earlier in the week President Donald Trump had indicated that the United States would deal with the crisis on its own, but then relented and sought help from China and Russian Federation. The statement comes just two days after the sanctions were announced. That prompted South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha to correct him slightly.

"At minimum, we must adhere to the language of the Vientiane Joint Communique 2016, which made reference to land reclamation, non-militarisation and self-restraint in the conduct of activities".

Asean foreign ministers meeting in the Philippines failed on Sunday to immediately release a joint statement on China's expansion in disputed islands.

However, an initial draft of the statement this year obtained by the media omitted that provision.

"So there were three issues that we agreed on the words land reclamation", he said.

In July 2016, the arbitral tribunal in the Hague ruled that Beijing has no legal or historical basis for its nine-dash line, which demarcates its claims to nearly the entire South China Sea.

Cayetano reiterated that while they have the same goals as the previous administration, they are using a different strategy.

During their meeting, Tillerson, Kono and Bishop stressed the need to protect freedom of navigation and overflight in the South China Sea, a key shipping lane believed to be rich in marine and mineral resources.

Ri said that the North has demonstrated to the world its significantly improved missile capability through the recent missile tests, who he said is a "stern warning" to the US. "You can only have peace if there is stability. you can only have development and progress when there is peace and stability", he said.

The United States did not seek regime change, the collapse of the regime, an accelerated reunification of the peninsula or an excuse to send the U.S. military into North Korea, Tillerson said.

South Korea's top diplomat Kang Kyung-hwa had said she wanted to hear a response to the offer "as soon as possible", when she briefly exchanged words with Ri on Sunday evening, according to the report.

Critics and even other nations, however, may have reservations.

The United States, Japan and Australia have expressed "serious concerns" over disputes related to the South China Sea.

Then, Wang emphasized, "When we knew that you would become foreign minister, many of us held high expectations". "We will decide what is good for us, what strategy is good for us, because we are a sovereign nation", he added. "As being chair, our main task was to produce a joint communiqué that all Asean members would sign regardless of differences in position", Abella told a press conference.
