From Saturday to Aug 9, the US Secretary of State will be in the Philippines, then Thailand and Malaysia.

In a statement, Heather Nauert, US State Department spokesman, said aside from participating in the ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF), Tillerson will also be joining the East Asia Ministerial Summit, the US-Asean Ministerial and the Lower Mekong Initiative Ministerial.

The EAS brings together the 10-member Asean and other regional powers such as Japan, China, South Korea, India, Russia and Australia.

Thornton declined to comment on any possible action but stressed that despite Trump's tweets, North Korea and the trade issue were not linked in a "transactional", but "in a sort of philosophical way".

She added that Tillerson's travel reaffirms the commitment of the United States to broaden and enhance U.S. economic and security interests in the Asia-Pacific region.

She says she anticipates "pretty serious diplomatic isolation directed at the North Korean foreign minister".

"The interlocutors exchanged assessments of developments on the Korean Peninsula in the context of the UN Security Council's forthcoming reaction to the ballistic missile launch that Pyongyang effecturated on July 28", the ministry's report said. "We've had the US-China Comprehensive Economic Dialogue here in Washington DC recently that discussed the full gamut of trade and investment and economic issues, and that discussion is continuing and we've got a number of hundred-day plans in the works to negotiate resolution and show concrete progress in that relationship", the official said.

DPRK is an acronym for North Korea's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
