Beijing urges global community to pool efforts to resolve North Korea issue

Kang and Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono discussed her possible visit during a telephone conversation two days earlier over North Korea's long-range missile launch, and agreed to have their ministries arrange detailed schedules of the visit, according to sources.

It was the country's third intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) test, but the first of what North Korea is calling its Hwasong-15 missile.

Analysis of North Korea's latest missile launch reveals a bigger, better rocket that has been domestically built.

"We know the main driver of its nuclear production is oil", she said.

Photos released by North Korean media show the launch process as supervised by the country's leader, Kim Jong Un, and reveal a new missile, the Hwasong-15, that is unlike anything previously seen from the nation.

Trump's tweets further inflamed tensions reignited this week after North Korea said it had successfully tested a new intercontinental ballistic missile in a "breakthrough" that put the US mainland within range of its nuclear weapons whose warheads could withstand re-entry to the Earth's atmosphere. "President Trump called President Xi this morning and told him that we've come to the point where China must cut off the oil for North Korea".

In spite of Trump's rhetoric and warnings that all options, including military ones, are on the table in dealing with North Korea, his administration has stressed it favors a diplomatic solution to the crisis. We do think they could do more with the oil. "The dictator of North Korea made a choice yesterday that brings the world closer to war, not farther from it", U.S. ambassador Nikki Haley told the council. "We are stuck. We have to adapt to North Korea as a nuclear power, and we will actually".

A White House statement about the phone conversation between the U.S. and Chinese leaders said Mr Trump made clear "the determination of the United States to defend ourselves and our allies".

Previous U.S. administrations have failed to stop North Korea from developing nuclear weapons and a sophisticated missile program.

But Mike Elleman, a leading missile expert, wrote on 38 North, a website for North Korea analysis, that despite the missile's size it still probably couldn't send a heavy nuclear warhead as far as the US's east coast.

The US warned North Korea's leadership will be "utterly destroyed" if war breaks out but its call for nations to cut ties with Pyongyang was rejected by Moscow while Beijing sidestepped talk of an oil embargo.

The US's ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, on Wednesday said that the US was not seeking war with North Korea but that the latest launch "brings us closer to war".
