Washington called on the international community to sever diplomatic and trade ties with Pyongyang, pledging to the United States ambassador to the United Nations, Nikke Hailey, to destroy the entire North Korean regime.
"The North Korean regime will be completely destroyed if war breaks out," Hailey said at an emergency Security Council session to discuss the latest North Korean missile launch.
The US spokeswoman said Pyongyang, by launching an intercontinental ballistic missile, "chose aggression" instead of the peace process.
"North Korea's behavior is becoming increasingly intolerable," she said.
The UN's chief political officer, Geoff Riveltman, met with North Korean envoy Ja Song Nam on Wednesday and told him that his country should "stop making any other destabilizing moves" after Pyongyang fired a new ballistic missile.
"During the meeting I stressed that nothing is more dangerous to peace and security in the world than what is happening now on the Korean Peninsula," Feltman told the UN Security Council at a meeting on the new missile test.
