Former defence secretary Ash Carter, however, said he doubted that Beijing will co-operate.

Haley's comments on North Korea reflect growing frustration in the Security Council and internationally at the failure of six United Nations sanctions resolutions to stop Pyongyang's nuclear and missile testing and the expansion of its nuclear program.

The U.S. Treasury Department issued sanctions Friday against 11 North Koreans and one company for links to the development of weapons of mass destruction, including financial support.

"The visit to the South by the North Korean team was approved", the unification ministry, which oversees relations with Pyongyang, said in a statement.

The review, which was led by national security adviser H.R. McMaster, proposes a multi-pronged approach aimed at tightening the screws on North Korea economically and militarily, the official said.

Trump told the newspaper that he doesn't "want to talk about tariffs yet, perhaps the next time we meet".

"I know China wants to see North Korea stop with the testing", the USA ambassador said.

"They need to show us how concerned they are", Haley said.

"It's likely that they're trying to make a device small enough to achieve their goal of putting a nuclear warhead on a long-range missile", Wolfsthal said. The drill is part of the annual joint exercise Foal Eagle to enhance the combat readiness of the US and South Korea supporting forces in defense of the Korean Peninsula. She said she plans to visit Geneva to talk to members about what the USA thinks an effective council should look like.
