They also agreed that North Korea will send a high-ranking delegation, a taekwondo demonstration team and a cheering squad to the Winter Olympic Games scheduled to be held in South Korea's PyeongChang on February 9-25.

There were reports that North Korea had proliferation linkages with Pakistan.

Next week, the United States and Canada are to host a meeting on the nuclear stand-off with North Korea in Vancouver, bringing together friendly powers from around the world.

As the hotline was disconnected, the South previously asked the United Nations Command to contact the North when rescued North Korean fishermen wished to go home or bodies of North Koreans were found in the sea.

Morneau's order is largely symbolic, said Garry Clement, a retired RCMP officer and current vice-president of the Association of Certified Financial Crime Specialists, and appears designed more to get other countries on board. In addition to reducing trade, China has also severed business ties, restricted financial transactions, kicked out workers, and closed down companies. China and Russian supported the north during that conflict.

"That's the only way you're ever going to tighten this up", Clement said.

But while Canada and the USA have welcomed the Korean discussions, Hook said they were unlikely to change the agenda of the Vancouver meeting or result in a short-term softening of sanctions.

China, which was not invited to next week's Vancouver meeting, has started to crack down on illicit North Korean financing and smuggling, Brian Hook, director of policy for U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, told reporters on Thursday, but more is expected.

"The meeting will bring together nations from across the globe to demonstrate worldwide solidarity against North Korea's unsafe and illegal nuclear and ballistic missile programs", the statement said.
