Tillerson also met with British Prime Minister Theresa May and discussed the threat posed to the Mideast region by Iran and the conflict in Syria. "Russian Federation is the largest employer of North Korean forced labor", he added.

The Trump administration had sought a full United Nations embargo on oil exports to North Korea, among other harsh measures, but China made clear it disagreed.

But in the face of resistance from China and Russian Federation, the U.N. Security Council on Monday imposed only restrictions on the North's oil imports, among other sanctions.

The launch, from near Pyongyang, came after the United Nations Security Council imposed an eighth set of sanctions on the country over its ballistic missile and atomic weapons programs.

The Foreign Office said Britain had "provided a strategic airlift" to support French relief operations on the Caribbean islands of St Barts and St Martin, and "worked closely with the USA authorities to ensure people's safety in Florida".

"It's clear that with respect to oil, and a complete embargo on oil from the UN Security Council, that's going to be very hard", he said.

The secretary's hardline stance comes weeks before the Trump administration must decide whether it will certify Iranian compliance with the deal to the U.S. Congress.

Iran is not meeting the expectations laid out in the worldwide nuclear agreement known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JPCOA), US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on Thursday. "In effect, that is directed at China alone because China supplies essentially all of North Korea's oil".

Mr Tillerson visited No 10 for detailed talks with the UK National Security Adviser Mark Sedwill today before a broader meeting with Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson.

They will then discuss the upheaval in Libya with representatives from the U.N., Italy, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates, hoping to give impetus to U.N. mediation efforts.

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