Without making major claims about Kim, he noted that the North Korean leader had assumed power at a young age and was forced to deal with "obviously very tough people".

Elsewhere, Mr Trump's National Security Adviser, Lt. Gen. HR McMaster said that Trump "has made clear that he is going to resolve this issue one way or the other", but that the President's preference is to work with China and others to resolve it without military action. A few residents were injured or fainted from the scuffle and were transported to a hospital.

He has said the security benefits of THAAD would be offset by worsened relations with China, which is the country's biggest trading partner and is opposed to its deployment.

"North Korea disrespected the wishes of China & its highly respected President when it launched, though unsuccessfully, a missile today".

But both China and Russian Federation rebuked Washington's threat of military force at a meeting of the U.N. Security Council on the matter.

President Donald Trump said last week that he would make the Asian ally pay $1 billion for the THAAD missile defense system now being deployed in its territory.

When asked, Mr Trump said Mr Kim will eventually develop better missiles, and "we can't allow it to happen". It broke up a couple minutes after the launch. Yonhap news agency said the missile appeared to have blown up a few seconds into flight.

"This is something that we know we can not tolerate", McMaster said.

Some analysts say a missile the North test fired April 5, which US officials identified as a Scud variant, also might have been a KN-17. It was likely a medium-range KN-17 ballistic missile and broke up minutes after launch, the Associated Press reported, citing an unidentified USA official.

South Korea's foreign ministry called it a "provocative action", saying it clearly violated UN Security Council resolutions and constituted a serious threat to peace and security.

It says that during recent U.S.

"North Korea fired an unidentified missile from a site in the vicinity of Bukchang in Pyeongannam-do (South Pyeongan Province) early this morning", the South Korean news agency Yonhap reported, adding that the missile "is estimated to have failed".

"They could be testing a variety of things, such as the thrust of the rocket engine or the separation of stages", Moon said.

North Korea has filed a number of missiles this year, with mixed success. There is still uncertainty surrounding some of the latest missile launches.

"Well, I didn't say 'don't test the missile, '" Trump began.
