US says North Korean missile test ended in fiery crash

They said it flew about 40 miles from its launch site near Sinpo, a port city on the North's east coast where a submarine base is located. It also prohibits financial transactions by US citizens with any government designated as a state sponsor of terrorism.

That distance is much shorter than recent North Korean missile tests that have drawn strong criticism from the United States, South Korea and Japan. "We have no further comment", he said in a statement.

While Trump and his top policymakers continue their tough talk on the North Korean issue, it's unclear such rhetoric would be enough to effectively influence North Korea and China, Pyongyang's only major ally.

The following week Tillerson traveled to Japan, South Korea and China, and announced in Seoul on March 17 that "the policy of strategic patience has ended".

China and the USA leaders will meet at President Trump's private Florida golf club this week, and North Korea is expected to top the agenda.

The consequences of the designation could include a ban on arms-related sales, restrictions on exports of dual-use items, restrictions on foreign assistance, financial sanctions against transactions with the designated government and potential liability in US courts for certain act.

During the mission, the USA will work with targets that replicate the speed and trajectory of the missiles Kim has been using during tests fired from North Korea.

Typically liquid fuel is used is Pyongyang's missiles, and before the projectiles are fired they usually have to receive the fuel on the launch pad.

The U.S. Pacific Command said initial assessments indicated it was a KN-15 medium-range missile.

Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga called it "a clear violation of the United Nations security council resolution".

South Korea's presidential office said the standing committee of its National Security Council will be convened.

The solid-fuel KN-15, also known as Pukguksong-2, is believed to be the same variant as the one fired by North Korea last February, while Trump was hosting Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at Mar-a-Lago.

"North Korea launched yet another intermediate range ballistic missile".

Abe told reporters at his official residence he was watching to see how China would respond to Pyongyang after Xi meets Trump at the USA leader's Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.

"America's commitments to defending our allies and to upholding our extended deterrence guarantees remain ironclad", Secretary of Defense James Mattis stated in South Korea in early February, "Any attack on the United States, or our allies, will be defeated, and any use of nuclear weapons would be met with a response that would be effective and overwhelming". Trump told reporters that he thinks China will "want to be stepping up" in trying to deter North Korea's nuclear ambitions.
