Representatives of the 15 member states of the council held emergency meetings earlier this year following an escalating war of words between the U.S. and North Korea.

She said the United States did not seek conflict but that North Korea's regime would be "utterly destroyed" if war broke out. While Haley remarked that the "North Korean regime will be utterly destroyed" in such a war, she neglected to mention the damage that South Korea, and possibly the USA, could also face from a North Korean nuclear attack.

The US has urged all nations to cut diplomatic and trade ties with North Korea after the country's latest ballistic missile test.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un thanked workers during a visit to a factory that built the tires for a huge vehicle used to transport a new intercontinental ballistic missile that was test-launched this week, the country's media reported Sunday.

North Korea reacted angrily on Sunday to the air manoeuvres, accusing the USA and South Korea of a "grave military provocation" that will "push the already acute situation on the Korean Peninsula to the brink of nuclear war".

Dictator Kim bragged it was powerful enough to carry a "super-heavy nuclear warhead" that could strike the "mainland of the USA".

Mr Trump has vowed to prevent North Korea from having that capability - using military force if necessary.

Mr Xi said China would like to keep up communications with the United States and all other related parties and "jointly push the nuclear issue toward the direction of peaceful settlement via dialogues and negotiations", according to Xinhua.

"The Chinese Envoy, who just returned from North Korea, seems to have had no impact on Little Rocket Man", Trump wrote. This is important given the calls for a tightening of worldwide sanctions against North Korea.

China's state-run Xinhua news agency said Mr Xi told Mr Trump that denuclearising the Korean peninsula, maintaining the global nuclear-nonproliferation regime and preserving peace and stability in north-east Asia were China's unswerving goals.

Those sanctions targeted North Korean shipping and Chinese companies that deal with the North.
