SEOUL, Dec. 1 (Yonhap) -- South Korea and the United States are not considering any military options, including a naval blockade, against North Korea, an official from South Korea's presidential office Cheong Wa Dae said Friday.

The remarks came hours after President Moon Jae-in and U.S. President Donald Trump held their second telephone conversation in just two days to discuss ways to rein in North Korea's evolving missile technologies.

"The issue of a naval blockade was never mentioned in the phone call with President Trump," the official told reporters, while speaking on condition of anonymity.
