China says North Korea tensions reached 'tipping point'

Moon took office in May promising to attempt to engage diplomatically with North Korea and seek peace, but in the months since, the North has provoked the international community with missile tests at a blistering pace.

The president says North Korea's actions show "contempt for its neighbors" and that "all options are on the table" in terms of a U.S. response.

A spokesman said: "The US should know that it can neither browbeat the DPRK with any economic sanctions and military threats and blackmails nor make the DPRK flinch from the road chosen by itself".

"The Security Council, resolute in its commitment to a denuclearized Korean Peninsula, emphasizes the vital importance of immediate, concrete actions by the DPRK to reduce tensions in the Korean Peninsula and beyond", the draft statement reads. Experts warned that the rapid-fire escalation had raised the danger of a miscalculation among the nuclear-armed powers.

The draft statement, seen by Reuters, would need to be agreed by a consensus by the 15-member council, which was meeting to discuss North Korea's firing of a missile over northern Japan earlier on Tuesday.

But Russia has banned bringing in additional North Korean workers, following the recent adoption of Resolution 2371, Galushka said.

The missile was only over Japanese territory (land as opposed to sea) for a few minutes - between about 06:05 and 06:07 according to the national broadcaster, NHK. Caty Weaver was the editor.

"The problem with the catastrophe trade is that there is only a very small chance of a massive market event and a near certain chance that nothing will happen.".

Robert Wood, US Permanent Representative to the Conference on Disarmament at the UN in Geneva labelled it "another provocation" that was "a big concern".

The North Korean People's Army takes part in a target-striking contest commanded by Kim Jong Un.

That missile splashed into the northern Pacific ocean. The US, Japan and South Korea considered it a ballistic missile test.

Demand for safe-haven assets rose.

"There is no immediate report of the fallen objects and no damage to the ships and aircraft", he added. American officials have long assessed that mass casualties would likely result.

The last North Korean projectile to fly over Japan was in 2009.

The North Korean launch "has thrown cold water" on the prospect of talks to resolve the country's nuclear issue, South Korea's foreign minister told her Japanese counterpart.

Pyongyang last month carried out two overt ICBM tests that appeared to bring much of the US mainland within reach for the first time - prompting Trump's "fire and fury" response and North Korea's threat to Guam.

"Preemptive strike capabilities would be too heavy a lift for Japan right now and counter-strike or retaliatory capabilities are more reasonable", he said. The refinery closures helped push US gasoline futures to a two-year high of $1.7799 per gallon on Monday, although they had receded to $1.7078 by 0957 GMT on Tuesday.

Pyongyang's defence chiefs analysed a plan for plunging a missile off the waters of the island under orders from the tubby tyrant.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe denounced the launch as "an outrageous act that poses an unprecedented, grave and serious threat".

"North Korea issued maritime and airspace notices about the trajectory of the launch and 'splash down' zones for stages of the rockets", said Kelsey Davenport, director of nonproliferation policy at the Arms Control Association. "It's unacceptable", Haley told reporters.
