Harris said North Korea's nuclear and missile tests showed that the country was a "liability for China not and asset", and for showed the need for Beijing to do more rein in its neighbour.

Asked about Haley's comments, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said China would work hard at reducing tensions on the Korean peninsula and finding a peaceful resolution.

The claim, if true, could mark an advancement in the North's ICBM program exceeding most expectations, said Kim Dong-yub, a professor at Kyungnam University's Institute of Far Eastern Studies in Seoul.

Kim singled out as "more serious" the push by the USA for a new sanctions resolution and the Trump administration's demand for all countries "to decide whether they support for DPRK or U.S".
