The quake caused by the test was 9.8 times more powerful than its previous test.

They denied the discussions were "serious" or "detailed" - and said the U.S. have "no strong opinion" on the deployment.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Sunday said a sixth nuclear test by Pyongyang would be "absolutely unacceptable", after a 6.3 magnitude explosion in the North indicated a new detonation.

"I have already instructed the related ministries to collect and analyse intelligence, to give people of Japan informed appropriately, as well as to liaise with the related nations such as the US, South Korea, China and Russian Federation", he said.

North Korea's state TV announced the country's test of the device meant for an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) was a complete success.

In a statement Sunday, the ministry urged "immediate dialogue and negotiations".

What does the test tell us?

North Korea claims it successfully tested hydrogen bomb
North Korea commits to freeze and dismantle its military nuclear program in exchange for the construction of civilian reactors. Initially, North Korea seemed to back down from its threat of a nuclear strike in Guam, where many USA military are stationed.

Nuclear weapons so close to North Korea's border would be a game-changer in the increasingly volatile Korean Peninsula.

"I can't help but be disappointed and outraged", he said, adding that North Korea's weapons programme was "threatening world peace" and would only "isolate them further".

The US and its allies attempt to detect blast material to gauge North Korea's progress, but Pyongyang has become better at containing it as its nuclear program has evolved. Experts and outside governments are skeptical of the hydrogen claim, but it is nearly impossible to independently confirm North Korean statements about its highly secret weapons program.

In what could be read as a veiled warning of more nuclear tests, Kim underlined the need for scientists to "dynamically conduct the campaign for successfully concluding the final-stage research and development for perfecting the state nuclear force" and "set forth tasks to be fulfilled in the research into nukes".
