MANILA - The foreign ministers of the United States and South Korea on Sunday described new sanctions placed on North Korea by the United Nations Security Council as a good outcome in efforts to press Pyongyang to end its nuclear program and missile tests.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson met his South Korean counterpart Kang Kyung Wha on the sidelines of a regional security meeting in Manila.

Prior to starting the meeting, which was closed to the media, Tillerson described the passing of the resolution as "a good outcome" and Kang, sitting opposite him, added that "it was a very, very good outcome."
