  • North Korea's missiles 'could reach Europe sooner than expected'

In response, Washington has pleaded Monday with its allies in the security council of the united nations for sanctions "the strongest possible".

Mr Guterres said it is "absolutely crucial" the UN Security Council is united in dealing with North Korea's nuclear and missile tests and that the US, Russia, China, Japan and South Korea use one strategy.

Sanctions have done little to stop North Korea boosting its nuclear and missile capacity as it faces off with U.S. President Donald Trump who has vowed to stop Pyongyang from being able to hit the mainland United States with a nuclear weapon.

The regime of Kim Jong-un claims to have detonated a H-bomb that could be placed in a ballistic missile.

Mr Putin called for talks with North Korea, and warned against "military hysteria".

Han's tirade comes as South Korea and the US are seeking tougher UN Security Council sanctions against North Korea, including a halt to oil supplies to the North and a ban on its exportation of laborers.

He called on the DPRK authorities to "comply fully with worldwide obligations, the Security Council resolutions including Resolution 2371 adopted last month".

Referring to the sixth nuclear test conducted by North Korea, under the leadership of Kim Jong-un, Han said that military measures undertaken by North Korea were "an exercise of restraint and justified self-defence right" to counter "the ever-growing and decade-long U S nuclear threat and hostile policy aimed at isolating the country".

The country's ambassador to the United Nations accused the US of reckless provocations and attempts to put pressure on North Korea.

Sunday's test of what North Korea said was an advanced hydrogen bomb was its largest by far.

The damage inflicted on South Korea's economy should a conflict start with its northern neighbor has sharpened focus on the nation's important role in the technology industry's global supply chain.

Following the September 3rd test, South Korea announced an agreement with its ally the United States, to scrap a weight limit on its warheads, saying this would help it respond to the threat from its northern neighbour.
