  • Tillerson urges China to curb oil supply to N

The country's state media made the announcement Wednesday, hours after leader Kim Jong Un ordered the 3 a.m. local time launch of the Hwasong-15 missile, which reached the highest altitude ever recorded by a North Korean missile.

The US ambassador to the UN Security Council Nikki Haley said the North Korean regime would be "utterly destroyed" if war comes.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Thursday welcomed Chinese efforts toward North Korea amid tensions over Pyongyang's nuclear weapons program, but said Beijing could do more with its oil exports to pressure North Korea.

"Then we will make the decision about how to respond", Lavrov told reporters.

Mr Trump has been trying to apply more pressure on the hermit kingdom and re-designated them a state sponsor of terrorism, meaning the USA can enforce even more sanctions on Kim Jong-un's regime.

"We have got to take them at their word, so this could be a global conflict". Haley said that President Donald Trump had called Xi and asked him to cut off oil supplies to North Korea.

Lavrov said he was referring to joint U.S.

Russian Federation is setting the stage for sidelining the United States in the North Korean nuclear crisis that has been escalating for roughly four months, during which the administration of President Donald Trump has relied primarily on threats of total annihilation, sanctions, and name-calling. "We do not see any reasonable alternative to it", it said.

"It's as if the recent actions of the USA are consciously directed to provoke Pyongyang towards other radical actions".

"The Chinese envoy, who just returned from North Korea, seems to have had no impact on Little Rocket Man", Mr Trump said. "That's why we are interested in a political and diplomatic solution".

"If someone really wants to use force to, as the US representative to the United Nations put it, destroy North Korea.then I think that is playing with fire and a big mistake", Lavrov told reporters.

He also complained that the United States was "totally ignoring" a U.N. demand for talks with North Korea.
