The United States has not ruled out military options against North Korea, President Donald Trump's national security adviser said Friday, after Pyongyang launched another missile over Japan.

Speaking to military personnel at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland on Friday en route to his New Jersey golf club, Mr Trump said that North Korea had "once again shown its utter contempt for its neighbours and the entire world community".

McMaster says recently imposed United Nations sanctions on North Korea are just taking effect.

"The president's consistent message will emphasize three goals: first to promote peace, second to promote prosperity, and third to uphold sovereignty and accountability", White House national security adviser H.R. McMaster told reporters at the White House on Friday (September 15).

Haley said recent sanctions have "strangled" North Korea's "economic situation", calling the impact "dramatic".

"We ought to make clear what's different about this approach is that we're out of time", McMaster said. And for those who have said and been commenting on the lack of a military option - there is a military option. He calls on all nations to enforce them and do everything they can to address the threat and prevent war.

Since President Trump threatened North Korea with "fire and fury" in August, the North has conducted its most powerful nuclear test, threatened to send missiles into the waters around the U.S. Pacific island territory of Guam and launched two missiles of increasing range over Japan. She said, however, that options for dealing with the regime of Kim Jong Un are not limited to diplomacy. "So, having said that, I have no problem with kicking it to [Defense Secretary James] Mattis because I think he has plenty of options".

The increasing levels of sanctions are expected to cut off 90 percent of North Korea's trade.
