In a hard-hitting address to the UN Security Council, US Ambassador Nikki Haley said Tuesday's ICBM test had made "the world a more unsafe place", and that Washington was ready to use force if need be to deal with the threat of a nuclear-armed Pyongyang. It flew for 37 minutes before splashing down within Japan's 250-mile economic zone, Davis said.

Moon's defense of diplomacy echoed former President Roh Moo-hyun's "sunshine policy" towards Pyongyang, and his predecessor Kim Dae-jung's "Berlin Doctrine", outlined in the German capital 17 years ago.

The Korean community of Sacramento County is speaking out in response to North Korea's missile test on Tuesday.

"It's not one we've seen before", Davis said of the missile, which could have the capability to hit Alaska.

Moon is a man stuck in the middle.

Though United States officials claim the missile poses no threat to the US, other experts believe it may have the range to reach Alaska and the Pacific Northwest, Reuters reported.

The world is now looking towards the U.S. and China to find a peaceful resolution to the tension, before the verbal conflict escalates beyond fix. "The nation with overwhelmingly the greatest leverage over North Korea is China. We will use them if must, but we prefer not to have to go in that direction", she said during an emergency Security Council meeting. "We stand ready to provide options if they are necessary". "I don't draw red lines", the president said. On Twitter, the reaction was mixed, varying between an outcry about the threat that North Korea poses, and a distrust of the media.

Mr Trump said that is is going to take time reining in North Korea's nuclear program, but he was confident that Washington and Beijing could reach a problem solving conclusion.

Russia's deputy United Nations envoy said on Wednesday that military force should not be considered against North Korea and called for a halt to the deployment of a U.S. missile defense system in South Korea.

Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull after a press conference in Hamburg, Germany for the G20. Trump tweeted about the meeting, but did not give details of the discussion.

Mr Rudd's comments referred to the need for a system that would protect population centres such as Darwin - which is now potentially within range of North Korea's missiles - rather than the systems Mr Turnbull referred to.

"Our self-restraint holds, and diplomatic efforts remain underway as we speak, " he said, adding, however, that diplomatic and economic efforts remained the tools of choice to convince North Korea to stop its nuclear and missile programmes. Xi and Trump are also due to met on the sidelines of the summit.
