However, North Korea warned Washington on Monday against a new round of sanctions and said its retaliatory measures "will cause the USA the greatest pain and suffering it had ever gone through in its entire history". "This includes the regime of North Korea, which has once again shown its utter contempt for its neighbors and the entire world community".

US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley also repeated McMaster's position, saying that the North continues to be "provocative" and "reckless".

The government said the missile landed around 2,260 km east off the cape of Erimo in Hokkaido Prefecture in Japan's north, at around 7.16 am local time (2216 GMT Thursday).

"The Secretary-General calls on the DPRK leadership to cease further testing, comply with the relevant Security Council resolutions, and allow space to explore the resumption of honest dialogue on denuclearization", said Dujarric.

The tougher sanctions included restrictions against its trade in oil and petroleum products.

US President Donald Trump was not impressed by the North Korean statements.

Speaking after a Council meeting at which it condemned North Korea's latest ballistic missile test earlier in the day, Nebenzya said that the United Nations sanctions resolution also called for negotiations with North Korea to resolve the standoff, and Washington must now honor that call.

The warning issued to residents to seek shelter in solid buildings was given for the same areas as the previous launch of a missile by North Korea on Aug 29.

Japan's Defence Minister Itsunori Onodera told reporters the missile may have been the intermediate-range Hwasong-12 missile, which has the range to reach the US Pacific territory of Guam. The services have since resumed.

"I am nearly sure that if the United States made an official statement about abandoning efforts to infringe on North Korea's sovereignty and influence it by using force, it could change the situation", Klintsevich said.
