Earlier in February North Korea test-fired a ballistic missile, which is believed to have splashed down into the sea between the Korean Peninsula and Japan.

Speaking in South Korea on Friday, Tillerson said that military action against the secretive state was an 'option'.

North Korea's latest rocket-engine test showed "meaningful" progress, South Korea said on Monday, while an analyst said it was a unsafe step towards the North's goal of developing a rocket that could hit the United States. Beijing fears Kim's fall would send waves of refugees into northeastern China and see South Korean and American forces taking up positions along its border. The country's official media service, Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), said the new high-thrust engine will help North Korea attain a world-class satellite- launching program.

It comes after North Korea has conducted five nuclear tests and a series of missile launches, in defiance of United Nations sanctions. Xi said that both he and Trump expect a new stage of constructive development in bilateral relations.
