"They do, in fact, assure our partners", Joint Staff Director Lieutenant General Kenneth F. McKenzie Jr. told Pentagon reporters Thursday.

Tensions between the United States (US) and North Korea worsened after Pyongyang tested its nuclear weapons in recent weeks in a bid to advance its ultimate goal to develop a missile capable of hitting the US mainland.

The last North Korean missile test was carried out nearly two months ago, but USA officials say they have seen no signs that Pyongyang has stopped development.

"Noting that these developments seriously threaten peace and stability in the entire region and beyond, we strongly urged the DPRK (North Korea) to fully and immediately comply with its obligations arising from all the relevant UN Security Council Resolutions", it read.

In Colorado, Mattis will visit the US Northern Command and the North American Aerospace Defence Command (NORAD), which are responsible for homeland defence, including tracking and potentially intercepting North Korean missiles.

Washington-based 38 North, a North Korea monitoring project, cited images taken on Nov 5 showing activity at North Korea's Sinpo South Shipyard.

"Our policy remains to have the verifiable, irreversible denuclearization of the Korean peninsula. They're different, but we agree that they're going to be different positions and therefore it's not going to move forward".

Mattis has long maintained that a diplomatic solution is the best option in dealing with Pyongyang, but military actions remain on the table if needed. "We have also discovered a parasite never seen in Koreans before".

South Korea and the United States agreed on Friday to keep working for a peaceful end to the North Korean nuclear crisis, but a USA envoy said it was hard to gauge the reclusive North's intentions as there has been "no signal".

Trump, who had previously called negotiations with North Korea a waste of time, has offered no clear path to talks.

But the "freeze-for-freeze" route seems unlikely as Trump this week rejected that idea, The Associated Press reported.

The Asean statement said the growing tension between the United States and North Korea should be resolved through a "peaceful" approach, thus, appealed that the two nations exercise "self-restraint" and start non-adversarial dialogue.

A Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman later said the dual suspension is "the most feasible, fair and sensible plan in the present situation".
