North Korea Claims US Mainland Within Striking Range After Missle Test

Friday's test prompted USA and South Korean military officials to discuss military response options.

He also vowed not to "allow this to continue", asserting that "China could easily solve this problem!"

The South Korean and USA armies staged a joint ballistic missile exercise on July 28. The first on July 4 showed the missile had the range to reach Alaska.

The developments came almost 10 months after Pyongyang carried out its fifth nuclear test. The U.S. House of Representatives voted this week to sanction North Korea, along with Russian Federation and Iran. According to the report, Kim Jong-un was quoted saying that the country's missile program is "a precious asset" that can not be replaced.

New Zealand's Foreign Minister has called North Korea's latest long-range missile test "completely unacceptable". On Friday, the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said that "this is again a manifest violation of Security Council resolutions". Meanwhile, Chinese Foreign ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang Saturday asked North Korea to respect the resolutions of the UN Security Council and refrain from any actions that could escalate tensions in the region, reports Xinhua news agency.

But the country's missile program has been progressing quickly. He tied trade policy to the North Korea situation and took a swipe at his predecessors in the Oval Office.

China is one of North Korea's only allies, although some analysts believe it has grown frustrated with the repeated efforts of its smaller neighbour to goad the US.

The test, which is part of a stepped-up missile campaign by North Korea, spurred some USA leaders to call for a ramped response.

North Korea confirmed the launch on Saturday, with its official news agency saying it was a "stern warning" for the United States.

Trump has at different points during his presidency criticised and praised China for its approach to North Korea.

But since then the North has carried out two ICBM tests. "We are working with our interagency partners on a more detailed assessment".
