After the latest missile test "now no one can infringe our sovereignty and rights to survive and develop", Vice Chairman Pak Kwang-Ho of the party's decision-making Central Committee said, adding that the U.S. had been "jolted" at the strengthening of North Korea's nuclear force and could attempt to commit "robber-like" provocative acts.

A White House statement said Trump and Moon reiterated their strong commitment to enhancing the deterrence and defense capabilities of the U.S. But China has refused to turn off its pipeline shipping crude to the North Beijing fears that taking tougher actions could cause the regime to collapse, triggering a refugee crisis across its border with the North and eliminating a strategic buffer separating China from the USA military in South Korea.

Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha is planning to make her first visit to Japan as Seoul's top diplomat later this month to discuss cooperation on reining in North Korean military threats and ways to resolve the countries' historical feud, diplomatic sources said Friday.

"We need China to do more", Ms Haley said on Wednesday.
