Haley said a plan is still in the works between the US, Japan, South Korea and China - North Korea's only major ostensible ally - to halt North Korea's progress on nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles.

The North has vowed to develop a missile mounted with a nuclear warhead that can strike the mainland United States, saying the programme is necessary to counter US aggression.

"If you are supporting North Korea, you are against the rest of the worldwide community", Haley said.

Separately, Mr Moon's envoy to the U.S. is travelling to Washington for talks about North Korea with United States president Donald Trump.

The top U.S. military officer in the Pacific has said that North Korea's recent military actions are "a recipe for a disaster" and warned against a sense of complacency in the face of increasing tensions on the Korean Peninsula. President Moon says he looks forward to holding talks with Abe in the earliest date.

North Korea conducted its latest ballistic missile test on Sunday in defiance of U.N. Security Council resolutions, saying it was a test of its capability to carry a "large-size heavy nuclear warhead". Seoul-Beijing relations have not been on their best shape since South Korea and the US announced their decision to deploy the USA missile defense system THAAD to the Korean peninsula. It has retaliated against Seoul by suspending visits to South Korea by Chinese tour groups and trips to China by South Korean entertainers.

But a senior North Korean diplomat has said Pyongyang is also open to having talks with Washington under the right conditions.

Numerous launches were considered failures, but experts said the one fired Sunday was a clear success and showed the country was making major advances.

"THAAD retaliation is a Chinese government-engineered project", Lee said.

"This is the desire of our two peoples but also our governments", Wang added.

In February previous year, however, North Korea expelled the last remaining South Koreans from the Kaesong joint industrial park inside North Korea, following the South's closure of the complex, due to fresh United Nations sanctions in the wake of North Korea's last nuclear test.

"Stopping the deployment of THAAD is the bottom line of China", the newspaper said.

"China is willing to make efforts with all sides, including South Korea, to take even more practical efforts and uphold resolving the nuclear issue on the peninsula via dialogue", the ministry cited Wang as saying. His envoy for Russian Federation will leave next week.
