While criticizing the UN Security Council's statement denouncing Pyongyang's latest ballistic missile launch, a ministry spokesman said on Tuesday that the North is ready to fight if the US opts for a military provocation.

Haley said the USA and China have been working on "a unified plan" on how to approach North Korea that would include stronger implementation of existing sanctions and tougher new sanctions. "We don't have it done yet", Haley said.

In a unanimous statement backed by China, the council on Monday agreed to take further significant measures, including sanctions. The meeting was convened two days after the DPRK test fired a ballistic missile.

Pyongyang should "conduct no further nuclear and ballistic missile tests", it said.

"The actions of North Korea are unacceptable to the world, really", the admiral said during discussions with Kishida.

The council has already imposed tough sanctions on North Korea, including banning the sale and transfer of coal, iron and iron ore from the country's territory.

Haley said the worldwide community wants to be able to support North Korea, but as long as it continues trying to grow its nuclear program with missile tests, North Korea would remain an "island".

Trump warned in an interview with Reuters this month that a "major, major conflict" with North Korea was possible, and in a show of force, sent the Carl Vinson aircraft carrier strike group to Korean waters to conduct drills with South Korea and Japan. "This is serious. These threats are not welcome", said Ms. Haley, speaking to reporters before the Council meeting.

The missile, launched on an unusually high trajectory, flew to an altitude of 2,111.5 kilometers (1,312 miles) and travelled 787 kilometers before landing in the Sea of Japan (East Sea).

Haley said the US and China have been working on "a unified plan" on how to approach North Korea that would include stronger implementation of existing sanctions and tougher new sanctions.

"We are willing to talk, but not until we see a total stop of the nuclear process and of any tests there", Haley said.

"We're not trying to do any of those things", she said.
