North Korea says new intercontinental ballistic missile capable of re-entering Earth's atmosphere

North Korea releases photos of Kim Jong-un celebrating latest missile launch

North Korea leader could feel backed into corner on sanctions and strike back, says expert

Nikki Haley, speaking at an emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council, said that if war comes as a result of further acts of "aggression" like the latest launch, "make no mistake the North Korean regime will be utterly destroyed". "We have never sought war with North Korea and still today we do not seek it".

The US ambassador said Trump had called Chinese President Xi Jinping and urged him to "cut off the oil from North Korea", a move that would deal a crippling blow to North Korea's economy.

Michael Duitsman, a research associate at the Centre for Nonproliferation Studies, noted that the missile was much bigger than its previous iteration the Hwasong-14, and added: "Only a few countries can produce missiles of this size, and North Korea just joined the club". "It is a situation that we will handle".

Hours after the isolated state's latest ballistic missile test, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations urged all countries to cut diplomatic and trade ties with Pyongyang.

Speaking at the same meeting as Ms Haley, he said he hoped a China-Russia idea that would see North Korea suspend testing in exchange for the United States and South Korea suspending military exercises would "elicit a response and support".

Russia's representative to U.N., Vassily Nebenzia, accused the United States and its allies of escalating tensions with Pyongyang through military maneuvers.

The fresh deliberations about new forms of punishment for North Korea came after its government said it successfully fired a "significantly more" powerful, nuclear-capable ICBM it called the Hwasong-15. He cautions that the weight of a real warhead could cause the missile's range to shrink considerably - but even by his most conservative estimate, the missile could hit cities along the U.S. West Coast. The launch at 3:17 a.m. Wednesday local time - early Tuesday afternoon in the US capital - indicated an effort to ideal the element of surprise and obtain maximum attention in the U.S.

North Korea has tested dozens of ballistic missiles under Kim's leadership and conducted its sixth and largest nuclear bomb test in September.

This summer, the Trump administration declared outright that if Mr. Kim succeeded in reaching that goal, conventional deterrence would not be enough.

US President Donald Trump derided Kim Jong-Un as a "sick puppy" and threatened "major" new sanctions after Pyongyang tested its third ICBM which it claimed was capable of striking anywhere in the United States. Nor is it known how the North's nuclear weapons would tolerate the stresses of being launched aboard a rocket. It raises fears of war or a pre-emptive US strike and casts a deeper shadow over the security of the Winter Olympics early next year in South Korea.

A rattled Seoul responded by nearly immediately launching three of its own missiles in a show of force.

It flew higher and longer than any North Korean missile before, landing in the sea near Japan.

North Korea boasted repeatedly in its announcement of the launch Wednesday that the Hwasong-15 was sacked from a domestically made erector-launcher vehicle. US officials have sporadically floated the idea of direct talks with North Korea if it maintained restraint.

Pyongyang says the missile reached an altitude of 4,475 km and flew 950 km in 53 minutes.

According to Japanese Defence Minister Itsunori Onodera, the missile broke apart into at least three pieces. "I believe one of my professors would have referred to it as a big honking missile".

However, all that is thrown into question if the payload - the nuclear warhead itself - is much heavier than whatever the payload was for Tuesday's launch. Trump also "emphasized the need for China to use all available levers to convince North Korea to end its provocations and return to the path of denuclearization".
