Japan, South Korea agree to seek stronger United Nations resolution against N. Korea

Theresa May is greeted by Emperor Akihito at the Royal Palace in Tokyo on the third day of her visit to Japan

In China, North Korea's lone major ally, Foreign Ministry spokesman Hua Chunying said the crisis was "approaching a critical juncture".

They are expected to issue a joint statement to boost partnership in defence, call for the new global sanctions on Pyongyang and ask China to increase pressure on North Korea, Japanese newspaper Nikkei reported. The Council, which was created at the end of 2013, consists of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and key ministers.

"These are illegal tests, we strongly condemn them and we will be working with Japan and other worldwide partners to ensure that pressure is put on North Korea to stop this illegal action".

May is in Japan to soothe their fears, but the visit has been overshadowed by North Korea's missile test over north Japan.

"I have said this to President Xi".

Earlier this month, North Korea said it was planning to launch four Hwasong-12 rockets that would fly over Japan and hit the water around 30 to 40 kilometres away from the USA territory of Guam in the western Pacific. A Whitehall source even raised the possibility that cyber warfare might already be in use, saying: "If we're doing that, we certainly wouldn't be telling you".

"That must include confronting the threat that North Korea poses and ensuring that this regime in North Korea stops its aggressive acts".

The test, one of the most provocative from the reclusive state, came as the USA and South Korean forces conduct annual military exercises on the peninsula, which the North sees as preparation for invasion.

On Tuesday, North Korea test fired an intermediate-range Hwasong-12 ballistic missile.

The White House said in a statement: "Threatening and destabilising actions only increase the North Korean regime's isolation in the region and among all nations of the world". The Japanese prime minister also said he would ask the United Nations to up the pressure on Pyongyang.

Security and defense had always been a planned element of the trip, with May due to address Japan's National Security Council and visit one of its warships on Thursday.

"We solemnly warn not only the USA and puppet group, but also satellites, including the United Kingdom and Australia, which are taking advantage of the present war maneuvers against the north, that they would face a miserable end if they join in play with fire by tiger moths of war", North Korea's official KCNA news agency said in a statement.
