If North Korea follows through on its latest threat of setting off a nuclear explosion over the Pacific Ocean, it will ultimately be up to President Trump whether the United States will respond with military action, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told ABC News on Friday.

Asked by ABC News' David Muir whether rumors that he was planning on exiting the Trump administration were true, Tillerson replied that "we have a secretary of state now, and I think he's planning to hang around". "We have put in place the strongest economic sanctions ever to have been assembled against (North Korean leader) Kim Jong Un".

The United Nations Security Council has unanimously imposed a set of sanctions against North Korea on September 11 over the country's hydrogen bomb test which was conducted on September 3.

He also said that he's been in contact with both Russian Federation and China on the issue of North Korea.

"Our new executive order will cut off sources of revenue that fund North Korea's efforts to develop the deadliest weapons known to humankind", Trump said. I think it showed the strength of the United States, but it also asked the world to come together and it asked all the countries to come together as we fight these rogue regimes, mainly North Korea and Iran.

If he decides that it is not, it could open the way for renewed United States sanctions and perhaps the collapse of the agreement. He added, "Whether you like it or not we are going to help Syria, Yemen and Palestine, and we will strengthen our missiles".

It's not that Tillerson was missing in action here; he also accompanied Trump to numerous events and held meetings with foreign delegations, including blunt discussions with the Iranians over Trump's sharp criticism of the United Nations -backed nuclear deal.

"I've said to Vladimir Putin I'm still the same man". And I'm trying to make sure that I inform the American people everything that I know, ' she continued.
