United States officials have also warned China could face USA trade and economic pressure - something Mr Trump has held in abeyance since taking office in January - unless it does more to restrain its neighbour. The Trump administration isn't taking military options off the table.

The South Korean defense ministry proposed talks with the North on July 21 at Tongilgak to stop all activities that fuel tension at the military demarcation line.

The test marked a significant step toward the goal of North Korea's young leader Kim Jong Un to develop a missile with a nuclear warhead capable of reaching the United States.

The UNSC is working on a new set of punitive actions against the North following its sanctions resolutions adopted after last year's two nuclear tests.

According to Reuters, Chinese state-owned oil major CNPC has suspended diesel and gasoline sales to North Korea during the last month or two.
