"As Kim Jong Un's most recent missile launch demonstrates, North Korea remains one of the world's most urgent and risky security problems", McMaster said, in reference to the North's defiant leader. They plan to meet this week at the U.N. General Assembly. "This includes the regime of North Korea, which has one again shown its utter contempt for its neighbors, and the entire world community".

Kim also said the the final goal of North Korea in developing its nuclear and missile programs was to establish a strategic equilibrium with the US.

And there's little sign that talks involving the U.S., North Korea and other interested countries can be arranged amid the nearly weekly barrage of weapons tests and threats, let alone stop the North's determined nuclear march.

Diplomacy on the North Korean nuclear standoff has been stalled for years.

Meeting on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, the three leaders will focus on the rising threat posed by North Korea, including a ballistic missile launch over northern Japan on Friday and Pyongyang's sixth and most powerful nuclear test on September 3, Trump's national security adviser HR McMaster told reporters.

". Additional provocations will only further isolate the country (North Korea) diplomatically and economically, and will eventually lead down the path of its own collapse".

North Korea fired the intermediate-range ballistic missile over Japan that landed in the Pacific, responding to new United Nations sanctions with its furthest-ever missile flight.

At the White House, McMaster called on nations to aggressively enforce recent U.N. sanctions to increase economic pressure.

"For those who have said, and been commenting about a lack of a military option, there is a military option", McMaster said.

But, unlike past presidents, Trump is promoting his "America First" agenda, and he has called for slashing US financial contributions to the United Nations.

"There is a military option", H.R. McMaster said during a press briefing at the White House, flanked by U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley. North Korea also has the world's largest standing army.

The UN Security Council on Friday strongly condemned North Korea┬┤s "highly provocative" missile launch and demanded Pyongyang immediately halt such actions - but did not threaten further sanctions.

During telephone talks Friday, Abe and Moon agreed to ensure close trilateral coordination with the United States in stepping up pressure on North Korea, according to the Japanese Foreign Ministry.
