"You either support North Korea or you support us", she said, suggesting some countries were failing to adhere to UN-imposed sanctions.

The Trump administration has been aggressively pressing Beijing to rein in North Korea, warning that all options are on the table if Pyongyang persists with its nuclear and missile development.

"THAAD retaliation is a Chinese government-engineered project", Lee said. However, Moon is now seeking a two-track policy of sanctions and dialogue.

Haley said a plan is still in the works between the US, Japan, South Korea and China - North Korea's only major ostensible ally - to halt North Korea's progress on nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles.

He stated that said Japan and the U.S., and possibly China and maybe Russian Federation, can work together to see what should be the next step to apply pressure on North Korea. "I think it is possible".

The remarks, made in a meeting with South Korea's special presidential envoy Hong Seok-hyun, are the latest in a series of signs that the USA may be moving toward dialogue and engagement after months of exchanging saber-rattling and harsh rhetoric with Pyongyang.

"We will make sure that everyone knows who you are and we will target those sanctions towards you as well".

South Korea's new President Moon has admitted that a war with North Korea is by far not unlikely. "We don't have it done yet", Haley said.

The United States wants North Korea to trust its promise of no hostility and conduct no more nuclear or missile tests before Washington can consider opening talks with the communist nation, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was quoted as saying Thursday.

The missile appeared to be similar in range and maximum altitude to the midrange missile that North Korea test-fired in February, an official from South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said. "You have to pick a side".

Earlier today, newly elected South Korean President Moon Jae-in said there was a "high possibility" of conflict with North Korea.

French researchers said on Friday they had found a last-chance way to save encrypted files. "What we are saying is that for peace on the Korean peninsula, he has to stop his testing". Many of them had multiple thermo-nuclear warheads.

China's Foreign Ministry, in a later statement on its website, said Wang "fully explained" China's position on THAAD and asked South Korea to handle China's reasonable concerns appropriately.

Speaking to reporters ahead of the Security Council meeting, Nikki Haley, Washington's envoy to the United Nations, said that the U.S. would only talk to North Korea once it halted its nuclear programme.
