  • N.Korea test-fires missile, Trump tweets

The move came days before a summit of G20 leaders in Hamburg, Germany, and a day after US President Donald Trump called China's President Xi Jinping and Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to discuss the nuclear threat from Pyongyang.

"The launch of a ballistic missile, carried out on July 4 at 3:46am Moscow time from a North Korean firing ground was recorded and tracked by Russia's missile warning system", an MoD statement said.

During a phone call Monday (AEST), President Trump "raised the growing threat posed by North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile programs", the White House said.

North Korea is already facing heavy sanctions from its regional neighbours.

Trump criticised North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un for authorising the launch, asking: "Does this guy have nothing better to do with his life?"

Mr Moon has pledged to seek dialogue with the Kim regime to curb its nuclear ambitions, a strategy on which he and US President Donald Trump reportedly agreed during their recent meeting.

Japan's government said the missile was believed to have landed off the coast in its territorial waters, but no damage to ships or aircraft was reported.

"North Korea forcibly launched a ballistic missile again".

Reacting to the development on Twitter, Trump said, "North Korea has just launched another missile". U.S. missile analyst David Wright says that would give it a potential range of over 6700km. He also reiterated that an era of "strategic patience" over North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile programs had ended. The Japanese leadership said that the missile flew for 40 minutes.

A South Korean soldier watches a television news showing file footage of a North Korean missile launch on Tuesday.

"I hope North Korea will not cross the point of no return", Moon said in response to the launch, the South's Yonhap news agency reported.

Since taking office on May 10, Moon has tried to improve strained ties with North Korea, but the North has continued its missile tests.

The U.S. president initially held off on taking a punitive stance on China over trade, declining to label Beijing a currency manipulator.

Tensions between North Korea and the United States have heightened further with Pyongyang's increasing frequency of testing ballistic missiles.
