China has not yet responded to the draft, but as the Chinese government emphasized solution through "dialogue" at the UNSC emergency meeting held immediately after the test launch, it seems likely that the U.S. and China will have difficulty in reaching an agreement on additional sanctions against the North. Russia has also expressed its opposition to additional sanctions on North Korea, making it even more hard for the UNSC to agree on "punitive measures" against the belligerent state.

"We will adopt a strong UNSC resolution to impose additional sanctions on North Korea, and do not want compromised resolutions", Haley emphasized, indicating that the U.S. will not tolerate a lower level of sanctions due to opposition from China and Russian Federation.

"Whether it's the regime's illegal nuclear weapons program, its provocative ballistic missile tests, its human rights abuses against its own people, or its outrageous and unacceptable detention of Americans, it is time to impose meaningful costs on the North Korean government", he said.

However, China is defending its stand as it prudently follows and observes sanctions released by the United Nations on North Korea.

China's exports to North Korea rose 29.1 per cent in the first half of this year. "So much for China working with us - but we had to give it a try!"

The officials say Trump is "frustrated" that his repeated demands for China to unilaterally solve North Korea, and that moving against Chinese businesses will be an expression of his frustration, expecting that it might convince China to do more. Imports from North Korea are declining every month beginning March.

A South Korean lawmaker, Yi Wan-young, said Tuesday that he doesn't think North Korea has secured re-entry capabilities for its intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) program.

"Should the UN Security Council adopt another 'resolution on sanctions, ' this will trigger corresponding measures", KCNA cited the official as saying. Total trade increased 10.5 percent to $2.55 billion during the period.

The UN sanctions allow trade in items considered "exclusively for livelihood purposes".

China has seriously carried out United Nations sanctions on North Korea, said Huang.

The volume of Chinese imports of North Korean iron ore almost doubled in the first five months of 2017 compared to the same period past year, according to Bloomberg Intelligence.

A spokesman for China's foreign ministry said the two countries "maintain normal trade relations" and China's position on de-nuclearization on the Korean Peninsular is "firm and clear". Trump even tweeted that they had an "excellent" meeting.
