Motives for North Korea's latest missile test

"(We) agreed that yesterday's missile launch by North Korea was a risky provocative act and a grave threat to (Japan's) security", Abe told reporters after the phone call, referring to the latest test-firing of a ballistic missile Wednesday.

U.S. President Donald Trump told Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in telephone talks Thursday that the United States considers all options are on the table in dealing with North Korea, according to the Japanese leader.

North Korea has fired a ballistic missile into the Sea of Japan, according to South Korea and the USA military.

Trump has repeatedly said China must do more to curb North Korea's nuclear and missile development.

South Korean officials said McMaster discussed the North's latest missile launch and the Trump-Xi summit in a call with his counterpart in Seoul, Kim Kwan-jin. North Korea fired a ballistic missile into its e. The North has defied the ban, saying it infringes on its sovereign rights to self-defence and the pursuit of space exploration.

They said it flew about 60km from its launch site near Sinpo, a port city on the North's east coast where a submarine base is located.

"China has great influence over North Korea", Trump said.

During the phone talks, McMaster said that Pyongyang's evolving nuclear and missile threats will be dealt with as an important issue during the meeting, the press release said.

It has used the anniversary in previous years to test-fire the intermediate-range Musudan ballistic missile and to launch long-range rockets to try to put satellites into orbit. South Korea's presidential Blue House called a National Security Council meeting to review the situation. "And China will either decide to help us with North Korea, or they won't.If China is not going to solve North Korea, we will".

As well as a growing list of ballistic missile launches, North Korea has also conducted two nuclear weapons tests since January 2016.

Chinese state media reported the launch of what is most likely a KN-15 medium-range ballistic missile, but did not issue editorials or position statements on the latest provocation. "He is making it clear that, no matter what North Korea does, the United States won't commit to direct negotiations unless Pyongyang shows real willingness for disarmament".

In February the North simultaneously fired four ballistic missiles off its east coast, three of which fell provocatively close to Japan.

The North is banned from any missile or nuclear tests by the United Nations, though it has repeatedly broken those sanctions.
