The trio will also discuss fresh ways to respond to North Korea's latest nuclear test after the United Nations security council approved new sanctions against Pyongyang.

The Secretary of State and Foreign Secretary appeared together following a day of talks on global security taking in North Korea, Iran and Libya. "Russian Federation is the largest employer of North Korean forced labor", he added.

The U.N. resolution also bans countries from giving additional work permits to North Korean laborers, another source of money for Pyongyang.

"United Nations Security Council resolutions, including the most recent unanimous sanctions resolution, represent the floor, not the ceiling, of the actions we should take".

Tillerson said it was going to be "very difficult" to get China to consent to an embargo against its neighbor, but he still urged China as a "great country and a world power" to use its leverage as the supplier of virtually all North Korea's oil.

Downing Street said Mrs May also raised the Iran nuclear deal - loathed by Donald Trump - "underlining its importance in preventing Iran procuring nuclear weapons".

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is holding talks in London with British and French officials on North Korea's nuclear and missile programs.

The aim of the meeting - attended by the UN envoy for Libya Ghassan Salamé and representatives from France, Italy, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates - is to "discuss how to break the political deadlock in Libya", Britain's foreign ministry said.

Tillerson recalled the preamble of the agreement, which expected the deal "will positively contribute to regional and worldwide peace and security", and contrasted it with the regime's continued malign activity in the region.

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