Joseph Yun, special representative for North Korea policy of the State Department, will fly to Seoul late Monday from his stay in Beijing for talks with Chinese officials, according to the officials.

There was no mention of contentious issues like North Korea's missile and nuclear programs or self-ruled Taiwan, which China claims as its own, in the meeting which was held at the Great Hall of the People. "We hope all parties including our friends from the United States could size up the situation in a cool-headed and comprehensive fashion and arrive at a wise decision".

In his comments in Seoul, Tillerson laid out details of the US approach, saying it would focus on getting China to better enforce United Nations sanctions against North Korea.

The Singaporean daily cited a report by the United Nations Security Council that said a similarly named and aged man had travelled to countries, including Malaysia, since 2012 as an operative of the Korea Mining Development Trading Corp, North Korea's main arms trader. He also said the threat posed by the regime was increasing.

Wang said China has come up with proposals for all sides to study, though he didn't detail them.

Kim called the test "a great event of historic significance" for North Korea's indigenous rocket industry, the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) report said.

Fears Kim Jong-un is ready to launch a nuclear weapon are increasing as statements from the country have become more direct and aggressive following an announcement on Friday by US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson the period of diplomatic patience with the dictatorship is officially over.
