Trump has pledged more sanctions in response to the latest test and, at an emergency U.N. Security Council meeting late Wednesday, the United States warned North Korea's leadership would be "utterly destroyed" if war were to break out. According to North Korea's Central News Agency (KCNA), a Hwasong-15 missile covered a distance of 950 kilometers in 53 minutes, reaching an altitude of 4,475 kilometers. Picture: AFP/KCNA VIS KNS.

While Haley claimed that an oil embargo against North Korea would be a "pivotal step in the world's efforts to stop this global pariah", China has indicated that it would not support such a policy, and analysts have warned that it would only harm the North Korean people. "The first thing that China is concerned about when it comes to North Korea is the development of nuclear weapons; the second, is how it can avoid any chaos [on the peninsula] that could lead to war". During the conversation, Trump urged his Chinese counterpart to stop delivering oil to North Korea.

Trump says on Twitter Thursday that the "Chinese Envoy, who just returned from North Korea, seems to have had no impact on Little Rocket Man". "This situation will be handled".

The proposal called for North Korea to curb its nuclear and missile tests, in return for the United States giving up on joint military drills with South Korea in the region, but it was rejected by Washington.

Outside governments and analysts concurred the North marked a jump in missile capability. This is the first missile launch since the last one carried out by North Korea on September 15.

Partly cloudy skies, temps above normal this weekend
Out ahead of our front, some rain will develop and could be steady for a while, especially later Tuesday into early Wednesday . Expect dry, sunny conditions Saturday , Sunday and into Monday with temperatures slightly above normal, forecasters say.


That suggests progress by Pyongyang in developing a weapon of mass destruction that could strike the United States mainland.

An editorial in the China Daily argued that the latest test may have been prompted by the Trump administration's decision to label North Korea a sponsor of state terrorism.

"We obviously are not looking for a military solution ourselves", Bessho said. China is North Korea's neighbor and its sole major trading partner.

China's state-run Xinhua news agency said Mr Xi told Mr Trump that denuclearising the Korean peninsula, maintaining the worldwide nuclear-nonproliferation regime and preserving peace and stability in north-east Asia were China's unswerving goals. "It is unavoidable and North Korea deserves it, particularly given that its development of the Hwasong-15 [missile], raises the threat level toward the worldwide community and the United States", said Zhao Tong, a fellow at the Carnegie Tsinghua Center for Global Policy.

Those sanctions targeted North Korean shipping and Chinese companies that deal with the North.
