Diplomats say China and Russian Federation only view a long-range missile test or nuclear weapon test as a trigger for further possible U.N. Security Council sanctions.

That's the claim of Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson.

Chinese Vice Commerce Minister Qian Keming, asked about Trump's tweets at a news conference in Beijing, said there was no link between North Korea and China-U.S. trade. "And we hope that at some point they will begin to understand that".

The assessment, which the officials discussed on condition of anonymity, underscored the growing threat posed by Pyongyang's nuclear and missile programs, and could add pressure on President Donald Trump's administration to respond...

"If there's going to be a war to stop [Kim Jong Un from acquiring nuclear weapons], it will be over there".

North Korea launched its second Hwasong-14 ICBM missile on July 28, possibly showcasing the ability to strike numerous mainland USA cities.

"There is a military option to destroy North Korea's (missile) program and North Korea itself", Graham said on NBC's "Today" show. "I have no doubt that he will be an absolutely superb chief of staff", Trump said about Kelly, a retired Marine Corps general who formerly ran the Department of Homeland Security.

In its editorial, China Daily said Pyongyang's constant saber-rattling is a threat to China too, as the world's second largest economy "feels threatened by the damage Pyongyang's nuclear weapons ambitions may inflict on its immediate neighborhood". Reportedly, the missile proved its ability to strike America's mainland, drawing a sharp warning from US President Donald Trump.

China wants both balanced trade with the U.S. and lasting peace on the Korean Peninsula, Xinhua news agency said in a commentary. Haley gave China a draft text after North Korea's July 4 ICBM test.

"If the two principal parties refuse to do what is required by the Security Council resolution - de-escalation of tension, negotiations to achieve de-escalation and peace and stability and also to resume dialogue - then, no matter how capable China is, China's efforts will not yield practical results" he said.

"As the principal economic enablers of North Korea's nuclear weapon and ballistic missile development program, China and Russian Federation bear unique and special responsibility" for the current situation, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Friday in response to Pyongyang's latest missile launch.

He said other options were "not particularly attractive".
