"The UK will work with our partners and allies to tackle this threat".

Pyongyang's latest midrange ballistic missile, the Hwasong-12, flew over Japan before dropping in the Pacific Ocean.

On Monday, North Korea, which sees the exercises as preparations for invasion, raised the stakes in its stand-off with the United States and its allies by firing an intermediate-range missile over Japan.

Kim said that he would watch the United States' actions before deciding whether to conduct more missile tests, including in waters around Guam, a USA territory that is home to Andersen Air Force Base, from which the B-1B Lancer bombers participating in the drills on Thursday took off.

North Korea has made no secret of its intention to develop a nuclear-tipped missile to fire at the United States and has recently threatened the USA territory of Guam.

His comments followed Yonhap news agency reporting that Minister Song, who was on a five-day trip to the United States, mentioned the tactical nuclear weapon re-deployment in his bilateral talks in Washington with U.S. Secretary of Defense James Mattis. Trump tweeted, a day after he said that "all options are on the table" for dealing with Pyongyang.

Arriving for a visit to Japan, British Prime Minister Theresa May called on China to put more pressure on North Korea, saying that Beijing had a key role in the global response to Pyongyang's "reckless provocation".

U.S. heavy bombers and stealth jet fighters took part in a joint live fire drill in South Korea on Thursday, intended as a show of force against the North after its latest missile launch.

The American bombers and fighters practiced unleashing "fire and fury" on North Korea in direct response to its recent missile test, which involved firing a missile over Japan in an unprecedented display of aggression. The two leaders are expected to discuss the possibility of further sanctions on North Korea, Ms May's office said.

CALLS for new sanctions on North Korea were condemned by China yesterday as "destructive".

Although the USA has so far declined to do so, arguing the decision makes its missile defense system it plans to install much less capable of countering a growing North Korean threat.

China repeated a call on Thursday for restraint by all parties.

Over the years I have played the North Korean tactical commander in a number of war games. "It is a real situation that directly bears on the security of the people on the peninsula and the whole regional peace and tranquility", she said.
