Previous statements denouncing missile launches "welcomed efforts by council members, as well as other states, to facilitate a peaceful and comprehensive solution through dialogue".

The report, carried by Reuters, also warned the usa and its allies "should not mess with us".

It has claimed that a new weapon that has recently been completed by the North Korean forces can "reduce to ashes" major parts of the U.S. Clearly, the threat and the warning of use of force is not going down well with the U.S., South Korea or any nations that are averse to the use of nuclear warfare.

On April 18, US Vice President Mike Pence urged North Korea "not to test" Washington's patience following recent US military strikes on enemy forces in Afghanistan and Syria.

Meanwhile, South Korea is keen on giving a show of strength in a bid to deter its North counterpart from launching any military attacks. "We feel very gratified about this". The resolutions ban the country from conducting nuclear tests and using ballistic missile technology.

Tensions have escalated over North Korean moves to accelerate its arms programs, including developing an intercontinental ballistic missile that could reach the United States and announcing that a declared priority is to develop a hydrogen bomb.

Tensions have risen sharply in recent months after North Korea conducted two nuclear weapons tests past year and carried out a steady stream of ballistic missile tests.

If North Korea were to launch a pre-emptive attack, the Japanese government would ask Japanese nationals staying in South Korea to take shelter at facilities designated by the South Korean government for that objective. At the same time, the government is considering beefing up measures to protect Japanese nationals in South Korea, and is referring to USA evacuation plans to fully prepare itself for an emergency situation on the Korean Peninsula.

A USA aircraft carrier strike group, led by the USS Carl Vinson, is heading towards the Korean Peninsula, Trump's administration has said.

The joint U.S. -South Korea military exercises are due to finish at the end of April.

North Korea test-fired what the United States believed was a mid-range missile on Sunday.

The failed launch came a day after the 105th anniversary of the birth of North Korea's founding father, Kim Il Sung, the current leader's grandfather. On Sunday, it attempted to test fire another missile, but it was unsuccessful, according to South Korean and U.S. officials.
