US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley (C), Koro Bessho, Japanese ambassador to the UN (L) and Cho Tae-yul, South Korean ambassador to the UN, hold a press briefing before a meeting of the Security Council concerning North Korea, May 16, 2017.

Rosselli, the Uruguayan ambassador to the United Nations, voiced absolute rejection of the continued nuclear tests and missile launches conducted by North Korea, adding the council will be working on ways to resolve the threat.

The U.S. ambassador said Russian Federation has the same decision to make as the rest of the worldwide community: "You either support North Korea or you don't, but you have to choose".

The Security Council, which has imposed six rounds of sanctions on the North, discussed possible further action at Tuesday's meeting.

Diplomats said that an oil embargo, expanded trade bans and sanctioning more individuals and companies would be among the measures that the Council considered.

"The actions of North Korea are unacceptable to the world, really", the admiral said during discussions with Kishida.

"The test-firing of ICBMs will occur at any time and place, at the will of North Korea's highest leadership", North Korea's ambassador to China, Ji Jae Ryong, told reporters in Beijing on Monday, a day before the UN Security Council meets in NY to discuss the test.

No draft resolution was circulated to the full council, but Haley said the United States was working with China on a text.

The Security Council adopted two sanctions resolutions a year ago to ramp up pressure on Pyongyang and deny leader Kim Jong-Un the hard currency needed to fund his military programs.

The missile on Sunday was deliberately fired on a "lofted" trajectory - reaching more than 2,000 kilometers (1,200 miles), which is higher than satellites in low Earth orbit - to test re-entry capabilities and place its "splash zone" in the open Pacific.

"Combining nuclear warheads with ballistic technology in the hands of a volatile leader like Kim Jong-un is a recipe for a disaster", Harris said.

"We need to return to dialogue with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, stop intimidating it and find ways to solve these problems peacefully", Putin was quoted as saying, using North Korea's official name.

"The United States is not past looking at third country entities who are helping North Korea and putting sanctions on them", Haley said.
