Her remarks were made after US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said during his Asia tour that it may be necessary to take pre-emptive military action against North Korea if the threat from its weapons programme reaches a level “that we believe requires action.”

Tillerson spoke at a news conference in Seoul after visiting the heavily militarised border with North Korea on Friday.
