"We'd like to have Russia's help - very important", said Trump.
Feltman said after briefing the council Tuesday that North Korea's foreign minister and others told him "that it was important to prevent war" - and how we do that was the topic of more than 15 hours of discussions. This lack of coordination between the White House and State Department will only chip away at the global community's hopes for the U.S. government.
The North Koreans "know where the door is".
He did not say a line that had appeared in his prepared comments, distributed by the State Department on embargo earlier in the day. "US and worldwide humanitarian NGOs working in North Korea are experiencing death by a thousand cuts", said Keith Luse, executive director of the Washington-based National Committee on North Korea, which includes many humanitarian agencies among its members.
But if talks with the USA fail, the authoritarian state could "try to make a breakthrough by improving relations with South Korea", Asan noted. His offer survived only a few days before being taken back at a United Nations special ministerial meeting. The Council has struggled to contain North Korea as the country continues to violate sanctions-backed United Nations calls on.
He said the US does not want war but "will use all necessary measures to defend itself against North Korean aggression".
But Russia's ambassador to the UN, Vasily Nebenzya, said, "it should be clear to everybody that the DPRK is hardly going to refrain from its nuclear missile program while it feels a direct threat to its security".

"Let's just meet and let's - we can talk about the weather if you want", he said.
"In the conditions of such tension, one ill thought out or misinterpreted step could lead to lamentable consequences", the Russian said, warning of a "policy of mutual pressure and intimidation".
Blaming China for strangling the North Korean economy, the secluded state announced that it is marching along towards a fully fledged nuclear weapons programme. That campaign, he said, must be given time to succeed. This is obviously in the remarks of UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, who stressed the need to immediately reestablish communication channels with North Korea.
"The pressure campaign must, and will, continue until denuclearization is achieved".
Tillerson also dismissed concerns that United Nations sanctions are having an impact on North Korea's humanitarian crisis, saying Pyongyang "hypocritically spends billions" on military programs "while its own people suffer great poverty".
"Similarly, as Chinese crude oil flows to North Korean refineries, the United States questions China's commitment to solving an issue that has serious implications for the security of its own citizens", he added.
Pyongyang has carried out its sixth nuclear test and conducted a series of missile launches including its first tests of two intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) this year.
