Its latest ballistic missile launch, in defiance of UN Security Council resolutions, was on Sunday which it said was a test of its capability to carry a "large-size heavy nuclear warhead", drawing Security Council condemnation.

Washington, she said, would consider talks with Pyongyang only if the country halted all nuclear and ballistic missile tests.

"I will never tolerate [North Korea's] provocations and nuclear threats", President Moon, who was sworn in last Wednesday, said.

Any country that did not look at putting new sanctions on North Korea was, in effect, helping the isolated nation, she said.

The Council has imposed six sets of sanctions against the North since 2006.

The missile on Sunday was deliberately fired on a "lofted" trajectory - reaching more than 2,000 kilometers (1,200 miles), which is higher than satellites in low Earth orbit - to test re-entry capabilities and place its "splash zone" in the open Pacific. "Is it possible or not?"

"If this goes to a military solution it is going to be tragic on an unbelievable scale, and so our effort is to work with the United Nations, work with China, work with Japan, work with South Korea to try to find a way out of this situation", Mattis said at a news conference. They're trying to strengthen their muscle with no cause.

As about Haley's comments, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said China would work hard at reducing tensions on the Korean peninsula and finding a peaceful resolution. "You have to pick a side".

"The government's stance is that the inter-Korean dialogue channel should be reopened", ministry spokesman Lee Duk-haeng told reporters during a regular briefing.

US experts said the missile launched over the weekend could have a range of 4,500 kilometers (about 2,800 miles), putting Guam easily within range.

The problem is that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un may well believe his own propaganda. "What we are saying is that for peace on the Korean peninsula, he has to stop his testing".

"The most impressive thing that I heard (from Tillerson) was that sanctions and pressure are not by themselves aimed at harassing North Korea, but are designed to create an opportunity for North Korea's development through opening its doors and scrapping its nuclear program", Hong said.

Speaking to the Associated Press about what would happen in the event of a nuclear strike from the North, scientist David Wright, of the UCS Global Security Program, and rocket analyst Markus Schiller, of ST Analytics in Germany, described how the drama would unfold.

"You either support North Korea or you support us", USA ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley said, suggesting some countries were failing to adhere to UN-imposed sanctions.
