Moscow favours political,diplomatic solution of North Korea crisis

"Put together with what they have been doing in the last several months, it is very clear that it is a real threat to the peace and security of the world as a whole", he told reporters before the consultations. "They should do more to find effective ways to resume dialogue and negotiation".

Cui on Friday cautioned against putting China-US trade on the table.

"We again call on the DPRK (Democratic People's Republic of Korea) to cease its provocative and highly risky actions that threaten the peace, stability and security of the region", Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano said hours after Pyongyang fired another ballistic missile over Japan.

He further said, "Workers at US airplane factories, farmers growing soybeans, companies that sell smart phones to China, manufacturers that enjoy large market shares in China, companies in the service sector that have gained trade surplus in China, US states that engage in robust trade with China would all stand against it".

NATO has called for "a global response" to North Korea's ballistic missile tests early on Friday.

A Hwasong-12 medium-range ballistic missile "zoomed to the sky with dazzling flash and big explosion" and "crossed the sky above Hokkaido of Japan along the preset flight track and accurately hit the preset target waters in the Pacific", Xinhua news agency cited the report as saying. It came on the heels of the adoption of a United Nations resolution imposing harsher sanctions against Pyongyang. According to the state-run KCNA news agency, leader Kim Jong-un said: "Our goal is to make the rulers of the USA dare not talk about military option regarding us". Sources have said Chinese companies shipping oil to the North will also probably be targeted by future U.S. sanctions.

Kim also said the the final goal of North Korea in developing its nuclear and missile programs was to establish a strategic equilibrium with the US.

Pyongyang defends its military program as deterrence against a potential military action by the USA, which has a strong military presence in the neighboring South.
