UN Security Council exhorts North Korea to denuclearize

National security adviser H.R. McMaster right and U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley participate in a news briefing at the White House in Washington Friday Sept. 15 2017

"The two leaders agreed on more practical and stronger pressure.to make the North Korean regime realise that further provocation will only bring stronger diplomatic isolation and economic pressure leading to a path of collapse", the South's presidential office said in a statement.

Responding to a question, Mattis said he is not aware of any effort on the part of South Korea to shoot down the North Korean missile.

The UNSC referred to the latest launch as a "manifest violation" of Security Council resolutions that comes less than two weeks after the DPRK conducted a test of a nuclear device on 3 September and only three days after the Security Council unanimously adopted fresh sanctions against the country.

Facing an escalating nuclear threat from North Korea and the mass flight of minority Muslims from Myanmar, world leaders gather at the United Nations starting Monday, Sept. 18 to tackle these and other tough challenges _ from the spread of terrorism to a warming planet.

The South Korean leader underscored the importance of enhancing South Korea's own defense capabilities, along with those of the joint forces of South Korea and the United States.

"What we are seeing is they continue to be provocative, they continue to be reckless".

"We've been kicking the can down the road, and we're out of road", McMaster told reporters, referring to Pyongyang's repeated missile tests in defiance of global pressure.

"The South Korean government said they fired a missile within minutes afterwards, from their coastline". She says war is undesirable but adds that "something has got to be done" if North Korea continues to threaten the USA and its allies.

"The two leaders noted that North Korea continues to defy the worldwide community, even after the United Nations strongly condemned North Korea's repeated provocations twice in the past week", it said.

The White House says Trump and Moon are committed to continuing to take steps to strengthen deterrence and defense capabilities, and maximize economic and diplomatic pressure on North Korea.

Trump also took to Twitter to describe his phone conversation with Moon.

Trump condemned Friday's test-launch of what North Korea claimed was an intermediate-range Hwasong-12, saying Kim's leadership "has once again shown its utter contempt for its neighbors and for the entire world community".

The worldwide community is scrambling to contain an increasingly belligerent North Korea, which in recent weeks has prompted global alarm by conducting its sixth and largest nuclear test and firing long-range missiles over Japan that it says could reach the United States mainland.
