Haley previously indicated that new sanctions could target oil, a critical import for North Korea mainly from China, and she said yesterday the USA also wants sanctions on organizations and businesses in third countries that are helping Pyongyang.

The North defends its weapons programmes as necessary to counter U.S. hostility and regularly threatens to destroy the United States.

"Our most basic stance is that communication lines between South and North Korea should open", Lee Duk-haeng, a spokesman for the South's unification ministry, told reporters on Wednesday.

Han Min-koo, speaking to his nation's parliament, said that North Korea's test of the Hwasong-12 rocket was "successful", and explained that the missile "is considered an intermediate range ballistic missile (IRBM) of enhanced caliber".

Kim singled out as "more serious" the push by the USA for a new sanctions resolution and the Trump administration's demand for all countries "to decide whether they support for DPRK or U.S".

Under the leadership of Kim, North Korea has been speeding up its pursuit of a decades-long goal of developing nuclear-armed missiles capable of reaching the US mainland.

Thus said newly elected President Moon Jae-in of South Korea, expressing a radical shift in his country's policy toward North Korea.

Trump made the remarks on Wednesday during a 15-minute meeting with special envoy Hong Seok-hyun in Washington, Yonhap News Agency reported on Thursday.

The spokesman said the goal of any conciliatory policy is to "peacefully resolve the North Korean nuclear issue and continue to develop inter-Korea relations", while "cooperating with the global community".

North Korea Links Nuclear Advances to Hostile US Policy
Pollack said experts say the only one of these sites North Korea could potentially reach now is Hawaii, and that is a stretch. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said that military action against the DPRK would be "tragic on an unbelievable scale".

Hong, a longtime advocate of Korean Peninsula issues, arrived in Washington earlier in the day for a four-day visit and is expected to hold meetings with U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Defense Secretary James Mattis and other senior U.S. government officials, as well as opinion leaders.

South Korea has complained that some of is companies doing business in China have faced discrimination in retaliation for the system's deployment.

Moon's comments came hours after South Korea said it wanted to reopen a channel of dialogue with North Korea as part of the new President's policy on two tracks, i.e. involving both sanctions and dialogue in order to calm down the Kim Jong-un regime. "Absolutely, sanctions is something that we are looking at and we are going to continue to see where that takes us".

"We need to return to dialogue with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, stop intimidating it and find ways to solve these problems peacefully". North Korea is the rogue nation that has long envisioned uniting the two Koreas through the use of force.

He said North Korea would stage more nuclear and missile tests in order to ideal nuclear bombs needed to deal with U.S. Pyongyang hailed as a success the launch that was aimed at testing its missiles' ability to carry a heavy warhead, a measure it says it needs to counter U.S. hostility.

Earlier this month the US, South Korea and Japan conducted naval exercises in the Sea of Japan, led by the aircraft carrier group of the USS Carl Vinson.

North Korea has called on South Korea to honour previous inter-Korean agreements on co-operation and reconciliation, which Seoul's unification ministry described as "not logical" given Pyongyang was testing weapons.

"The risky behaviour by North Korea is not just a threat to the Korean peninsula.it's a threat to China, it's a threat to Russia", Harris told an academic forum in Tokyo.
