"The goal of our welfare policy is to guarantee each person may live like humans", he added, according to Cheong Wa Dae pool reports.

US President Donald Trump, who was cool on North Korea while on the campaign trail, has taken an increasingly aggressive stance toward the communist nation since entering office, attempting to pressure Pyongyang into ceasing its missile and nuclear weapons development, to no avail. This means that the meetings could still be held if North Korea agrees, even this late.

But they have suffered setbacks following Seoul's halt of the Mount Kumgang tour program on the North's east coast and its imposition of sanctions in May 2010 over North Korea's sinking of a South Korean warship. "For now, it has become impossible to gauge inter-Korean relations".

"Government agencies are expected to begin their consultations over it this week", a government official said.

The US-drafted resolution, negotiated with North Korea's neighbour and ally China, is aimed at increasing economic pressure on Pyongyang to return to negotiations on its nuclear and missile programmes - a point stressed by all 15 council members in speeches after the vote.

Trump has been frustrated that China has not done more to rein in North Korea and Washington has threatened to impose new sanctions on Chinese firms doing business with Pyongyang.

The country was a military dictatorship for much of its existence, only embracing democracy in the 1980s.

The resolution's adoption follows North Korea's first successful tests of intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of reaching the United States on July 3 and July 27. Some experts argue that the complex should be treated as an exception, given the special relationship between North and South Korea.

Working to keep reminding people of all that was lost in his country, "fallen hero's sacrificed themselves, it was brutality and we have prevent that from happening again", said Park. Tillerson has no plans to sit down with North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho at the event. But the UN Security Council's sanctions resolution does not take issue with the Kaesong Complex itself.

Trump had earlier tweeted his support for the tough new sanctions.

Nearly 40,000 Americans died and nearly five million South Korean and North Koreans died, with half of those being civilians.
