"Combining nuclear warheads with ballistic technology in the hands of a volatile leader like Kim Jong Un is a recipe for a disaster", Harris said.

"It is actually North Korea trying to intimidate the worldwide community", Haley said, "and Russian Federation itself should be concerned because that ballistic missile test was a signal to South Korea for their new elections, it was a signal to Russian Federation in how close it got, it was a signal to Japan being in the region, and it was a signal to us".

Speaking of the enforcement of worldwide sanctions, she added this warning: "The United States is not past looking at third-country entities who are helping North Korea, and putting sanctions on them, because if you are supporting North Korea, you are against the rest of the global community".

South Korea's unification ministry on Wednesday expressed a need to reopen an inter-Korean communication hotline, which was severed early previous year following North Korea's nuclear and missile tests.

North Korea's nuclear and missile tests prompted the rival Koreas to suspend inter-Korean dialogue.

It flew some 700km (435 miles), reaching an altitude of 2,000km and landing in the sea west of Japan.

He also said the North's nuclear and missile capabilities seem to have advanced rapidly recently but that the South was ready and capable of striking back should the North attack.

In a statement Monday evening, Security Council members "strongly condemned" both of the recent missile launches and expressed their "utmost concern" over North Korea's "highly destabilizing behavior and flagrant and provocative defiance of the Security Council".

On Sunday, North Korea launched what appeared to be the longest-range missile it has ever successfully tested, sparking global alarm.

Later in the song, they refer to South Korea, saying, "this time, kid, you're going too far". He urged Pyongyang to ensure full compliance with its global obligations and return to the path of denuclearization.

Washington-US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley, the first Indian-American to hold a cabinet rank, pledged that the US plans to "tighten the screws" on North Korea's nuclear ambitions. "We will make sure that everyone knows who you are and we will target those sanctions towards you as well", she told reporters, flanked by the United Nations ambassadors to Japan and South Korea.

The United States said on Tuesday it believed it could persuade China to impose new UN sanctions on North Korea and warned that Washington would also target and "call out" countries supporting Pyongyang.

"Sanctions is something that we are looking at and we are going to continue to see where that takes us". He said the council is exploring many different avenues to proceed and "clearly sanctions are a way to go", but also diplomacy.
