Pence pressures China on North Korea

Nikki Haley the US Ambassador to the UN believes the time for talk is over

Any new U.N. Security Council resolution "that does not significantly increase the global pressure on North Korea is of no value", Haley said, adding that Japan and South Korea also needed to do more.

Abe told reporters that he praised Trump's commitment on North Korea and that he would make the utmost efforts to protect the Japanese public.

The second missile, tested Friday, could travel far enough to reach the West Coast or even the Midwest, U.S. defense officials and analysts said.

In more diplomatic language, Haley said: "China must decide whether it is finally willing to take this final step".

The Central Committee and the Central Military Commission of the Workers' Party of Korea hold a banquet at the Mokran House in celebration of the second successful test-fire of intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) Hwasong-14, in this undated picture provided by KCNA in Pyongyang on July 30, 2017.

But on Saturday, Trump said on Twitter that he was "very disappointed in China" which he said profits from trade with the United States but does "NOTHING for us with North Korea, just talk". Haley gave China a draft text after North Korea's July 4 ICBM test.

"If the two heads of state talk, they will likely discuss their respective stances on North Korea, the U.S. The danger the North Korean regime poses to worldwide peace is now clear to all", Haley added.

"Diplomacy remains the lead; however, we have a responsibility to our allies and our nation to showcase our unwavering commitment while planning for the worst-case scenario", Pacific Air Forces commander Terrence O'Shaughnessy said in the statement. "China could easily solve this problem", the president added.

Diplomats say China and Russian Federation only view a long-range missile test or nuclear weapon test as a trigger for further possible UN Security Council sanctions.

Early in his presidency, US President Donald Trump met with Chinese President Xi Jinping and had expressed hope Beijing would use its economic clout to curb North Korea's nuclear ambitions. "We will no longer allow this to continue", he said.
