The missile was launched near Sinpo on the eastern coast and flew for nine minutes over 60km yesterday morning, drawing condemnation from South Korea and Japan.

North Korea has launched a KN-15 missile from its eastern coast into the Sea of Japan, U.S. officials said Tuesday.

North Korea last month carried further tests of a rocket engine that U.S. officials believe could be part of its program to develop the intercontinental ballistic missiles referred to by Thae. The launch also came amid ongoing annual South Korea-U.S. military drills that North Korea usually responds to with its own military training and missile tests.

The European Union on Thursday expanded sanctions against North Korea over the country's nuclear tests and launches of ballistic missiles.

North Korea has successfully conducted a missile launch.

Pyongyang tested a new type of medium to long-range ballistic missile in February, which it later said was an upgraded, extended-range version of its submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM).

The Pentagon last April told Congress that North Korea continues to develop a mobile intercontinental ballistic missile that "would likely be capable of reaching much of the continental United States". However, the USA government insists it is ready to consider all options to contain the North Korean threat given the reclusive state's continued defiance of United Nations resolutions.

A press release "is not going to prompt them to fire off more missiles", he said.

The US has engaged in a programme to sabotage North Korean rocket tests since 2014, known as the "left of launch" strategy.

The U.S. Pacific Command said in a statement around the same time that initial assessments showed the missile was a mid-ranged KN-15.

The Massachusetts Democrat's plan, outlined in a letter that was sent to Trump on the eve of his first meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping, suggests that the United States should agree to direct talks with North Korea in exchange for China's commitment to drastically escalate sanctions against Pyongyang if they fail to negotiate in good faith.

It flew a distance of around 60 kilometers (37 miles) and flew as high as 189 kilometers (117 miles), South Korean officials said.

". Both agreed to push forward the deployment of THAAD by U.S. forces in Korea", the statement said.

Trump will host Xi for two days of talks, starting Friday, at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.

According to Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga, three out of the four North Korean missiles fired on Tuesday landed in Japan's Exclusive Economic Zone.

Pyongyang is on a quest to develop a long-range missile capable of hitting the United States mainland with a nuclear warhead, and has so far staged five nuclear tests, two of them previous year.

South Korea's Foreign Ministry called it a "threat to the peace and stability of the whole world", warning that further provocations could lead to more punitive measures. Most of North Korea's missiles use liquid propellant, which usually must be added on the launch pad before the weapon is fired.

North Korea has carried out several SLBM tests near Sinpo.

Hayden went on to call North Korea the intelligence community's toughest target on the planet.
