"We don't think having a dialogue where the North Koreans come to the table assuming they're going to maintain their nuclear weapons is productive", he warned.

That's the claim of Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson.

USA ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said on Sunday the U.S. is "done talking about North Korea" and China must decide if it is willing to back imposing stronger UN sanctions on Pyongyang. "If called upon, we are ready to respond with rapid, lethal, and overwhelming force at a time and place of our choosing".

Japan's PM said Sunday he "fully agreed" with Donald Trump that China should apply more pressure to North Korea after the president tweeted he was "very disappointed" by Beijing's response to the latest missile threat.

Pakistan's Foreign Office said that North Korea's actions are in contravention to the United Nations Security Council resolutions and undermine peace and stability in the Korean Peninsula as well as North East Asia. "If there's going to be a war to stop them, it will be over there".

North Korea launched its second ICBM on Friday, which happens to be its 14th missile test this year. Gen. Terrence J. O'Shaughnessy, U.S. Pacific Air Forces commander, said in a statement that America and its allies are capable of using "rapid, lethal and overwhelming force against North Korea", if such a situation arises.

Another voice: Drop the bluster on North Korea
If Trump doesn't act, it will be another sign to the North Koreans that they can do as they please with no consequences. China is North Korea's closest ally, but Beijing is angry with its continued nuclear and missile tests.

North Korea said on Saturday it had conducted another successful test of an ICBM that proved its ability to strike America's mainland.

"There is a military option to destroy North Korea's programme and North Korea itself", he said.

The deployment began in April despite strong opposition by China, which believes the powerful THAAD radars, installed about 300 km southeast of Seoul, could be used to spy on its military bases.

After a 50-minute talk with the U.S. president he said: "International society, including Russian Federation and China, needs to. increase pressure".

"[The president] has told me that".

Meanwhile, Pyongyang has been showing "highly unusual and unprecedented levels" of submarine activity and evidence of an "ejection test" in the days following the ICBM launch on Friday, CNN reported, citing U.S. defense officials. The National Security Council had previously listed putting U.S. nuclear weapons in South Korea or killing Kim Jong Un as a possibility. He said China had a particular role to play, as it accounted for 90 per cent of trade with the Communist nation.
