Tillerson said the provision was aimed exclusively at China because it supplies neighboring North Korea with most of its oil, as well as most of its trade.

The Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson, returns from his visit to the British Overseas Territories that have been devastated by Hurricane Irma today (Thursday 14 September) and will host a meeting with worldwide partners in London about continued co-ordination in response to the Hurricane.

Tillerson praised the co-operation between the UK, US and France in dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Irma in the Caribbean, reports the Press Association.

"(They) touched on the Iran nuclear deal, the PM underlining its importance in preventing Iran from procuring nuclear weapons", a spokesman for May said, as reported by Reuters.

Tillerson added that a "great country" and "world power" such as China could ultimately use the very powerful tool of oil supply to compel North Korea to reconsider its nuclear program and come to the negotiating table.

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.

Although Britain and France backed the U.S. demand for tougher sanctions, the final resolution was toned down to secure backing from China and Russian Federation.

Tillerson cited the preface of the nuclear deal, which calls on Iran to contribute positively to regional security.

The US hopes the trip will give "new energy and focus to mediation efforts led by the United Nations", Hook said.

The US on Thursday took action against 11 individuals and companies accused of supporting Iran's Revolutionary Guards or engaging in cyber attacks against US banks, imposing economic sanctions. "Iran is clearly in default of these expectations of the JCPOA", he said.
