"Every country has its own troubles".
Haley said the USA and China have been working on "a unified plan" on how to approach North Korea that would include stronger implementation of existing sanctions and tougher new sanctions. But a senior North Korean diplomat has said Pyongyang is open to talks with Washington under the right conditions.
Communications were severed a year ago, Lee said, in the wake of new sanctions following a fifth nuclear test and Pyongyang's decision to shut down a joint industrial zone operated inside the North. "The Unification Ministry has considered options on this internally, but nothing has been decided yet", said Lee.
Haley previously indicated that new sanctions could target oil, a critical import for North Korea mainly from China, and she said Tuesday the USA also wants sanctions on organizations and businesses in countries that are helping Pyongyang.
The North, which has defied all calls to rein in its weapons programmes, even from its lone ally, China, has been working on a missile, mounted with a nuclear warhead, capable of striking the USA mainland. Trump and Moon have both also warned that a major conflict with the North is possible.
However far apart the United States and South Korea are with the North, Pyongyang may finally have the leverage it wants to negotiate.
"Under any condition, war should not take place on the Korean Peninsula, and there should never be any discussion or decision on the future of the Korean Peninsula without South Korea's presence".
"Well, I think you first have to get into Kim Jong-un's head, you know, which is he's in a state of paranoia", Haley, the United States' ambassador to the United Nations, said on "This Week," about the North Korean leader.
The two sides also resolved to coordinate closely on North Korea, which continues to test-launch missiles in defiance of worldwide condemnation. There could be friction between the US and South Korea as well as the North. "And the United States is not past looking at third-country entities who are helping North Korea and putting sanctions on them".
"What we do know is the worldwide community is concern".
There is still uncertainty as to whether the U.S. might ask South Korea to pay for THAAD, the United States missile shield deployed against North Korean missiles.
