North Korea has said it carried out a successful test of a new ballistic missile on May 14.

U.S. Pacific Command said it tracked the missile until it landed into the sea.

Moon Jae-in has said dialogue and pressure must be used to ease tensions on the Korean peninsula and stop the North's weapons pursuit.

Trump, traveling in Saudi Arabia and Israel, had no immediate public comment.

North Korea has previously sent drones into South Korean airspace, with some crashing. In that regard, the regime in Pyongyang is moving forward at full speed with the development of nuclear weapons.

Pyongyang conducted two unauthorized nuclear test explosions a year ago and about two dozen rocket launches.

Pyongyang has been working to develop a nuclear-tipped missile capable of striking the US mainland and this weekend they said they'd reached their goal.

"The Trump administration would be well advised to lend an ear to the voices of concern that are heard from the USA and the worldwide community", North Korea's Minju Joson newspaper said in a commentary Sunday. It says the programme is necessary to counter USA aggression. "This is the DPRK's answer to the Trump administration'".

DPRK are the initials for the North's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

United Nations blasts Pyongyang's latest missile launch
A defence source told South Korea's Yonhap news agency that the flying object could be a drone. A similar meeting was held on May 16 in the wake of the North's missile test two days earlier.

Wang also said that China had seen a "new change" on the part of South Korea with its willingness to "actively seek appropriate channels for dealing with the THAAD missile systems issue".

The Security Council responded to that launch with a lengthy statement of condemnation that also threatened to impose fresh sanctions on the North for its "flagrant and provocative defiance" of earlier demands to end all nuclear testing.

Following the May 16 Security Council meeting, North Korean Deputy U.N. Ambassador Kim In Ryong called a news conference to protest Security Council sanctions and vowed to continue developing its weapons programs unless the USA changes its policy toward the North.

The UN Security Council is to hold a closed-door meeting on North Korea on Tuesday evening.

It was the eighth ballistic missile launch by the North this year and came only one week after it launched another intermediate-range ballistic missile.

Sunday's launch by North Korea was confirmed by the United States and Japan.

Unsettled by North Korean missile and nuclear programs, the United States has adopted a war-like posture, sending a strike group and conducting joint military drills with North Korea's regional adversaries Japan and South Korea.

He noted the Pukguksong-2's solid fuel is of particular concern.

The North's state news agency saying it was powered by a solid fuel engine - which allows for launches at short notice.

So far nearly all the North's missiles have been liquid-fuelled, which have to be time-consumingly filled with propellant before launch. Talmadge is the AP's Pyongyang bureau chief.
