"We can never tolerate that North Korea trampled on the global community's strong, united resolve towards peace that has been shown in UN resolutions and went ahead again with this outrageous act", he said on Friday.

"As Kim Jong-Un's most recent launch demonstrates, this is one of the world's most urgent and unsafe security problems", he added.

On Thursday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Security Council resolutions "represent the floor, not the ceiling, of the actions we should take".

Yoshihide Suga, Japan's chief cabinet secretary, said, "We absolutely can not accept these repeated provocations by North Korea and we strongly protest to North Korea and convey to them the nation's strong anger in the strongest words possible".

Responding to a question, Mattis said he is not aware of any effort on the part of South Korea to shoot down the North Korean missile.

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said on Twitter, "North Korea's missile launch is another reckless breach of United Nations resolutions - a major threat to worldwide peace and security which demands a global response".

The emergency meeting of Security Council was convened at the request of Japan and the US.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe called for new sanctions "to be firmly imposed" in response to the latest North Korean missile test that violated Japanese airspace. Now, however, with North Korea perilously close to being able to directly threaten United States cities with nuclear obliteration, the worry for some is that Pyongyang could blackmail Washington into qualifying or limiting its support for its allies in the region.

Ahead of President Donald Trump's first U.N. General Assembly next week in New York, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is expected discuss the president's goals for the summit, as well as his speech to world leaders while there, in a news briefing Friday. Afterward, in a statement, the council condemned the "highly provocative launch" and called on North Korea to reduce tensions on the peninsula. "China and Russian Federation must indicate their intolerance for these reckless missile launches by taking direct actions of their own", Tillerson demanded.

"The South Korean government said they fired a missile within minutes afterwards, from their coastline".

More specifically, China and Russian Federation want the U.S.to accept North Korea's demand to cease joint military exercises with South Korea to bring the Kim regime to the negotiating table. Dictator Kim Jong-un has repeatedly threatened to attack both Guam and Japan with missiles, possibly using nuclear warheads. That launch came less than two weeks after Pyongyang staged its most powerful nuclear test yet.

"In case North Korea undertakes provocations against us or our ally, we have the power to destroy them beyond recovery", added Moon, once seen as a liberal dove.
