Tillerson admits difficulty of oil embargo on N. Korea

"We will stand by our ally as Brexit continues to take shape".

Mr Tillerson vowed to stand shoulder to shoulder with the United Kingdom in a joint press conference with Boris Johnson at the Foreign Office.

Britain said on Friday the world would stand together against North Korea after the country fired a missile that flew over Japan into the Pacific Ocean, ratcheting up tensions after Pyongyang's test of a powerful nuclear bomb.

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.

Libya and North Korea were expected to be the focus of talks on global security, after which Tillerson and Johnson were scheduled to hold a joint news conference.

"I think it's clear that with respect to oil and a complete embargo on oil from the U.N. Security Council, that's going to be very hard", Tillerson added, according to an official transcript.

The aim of the meeting - attended by the UN envoy for Libya Ghassan Salamé and representatives from France, Italy, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates - is to "discuss how to break the political deadlock in Libya", Britain's foreign ministry said. "Close coordination with our allies is vital for both the short-term and long-term recovery efforts", Johnson was quoted as saying Wednesday ahead of the meeting.
