US President Donald Trump promised a "severe" response on Tuesday to North Korea after firing an intercontinental ballistic missile, as calls for new sanctions against Pyongyang multiply.

They also stressed the exercise is to show that, regardless of where, how and in what form Pyongyang provokes the allies, the Air Forces of South Korea and the US will respond right away and annihilate any further attempts to provoke.

The White House said after the meeting with Abe that the USA was "prepared to use the full range of capabilities" in defense of Japan.

"The consensus has been that North Korea's program - missile as well as nuclear - is mostly indigenous", said Laura Holgate, a top adviser on nonproliferation to the Obama administration who stepped down in January as head of the USA mission to the United Nations in Vienna.

The US Air Force said Thursday's B-1 bomber flight over the South China Sea was "to exercise the rights of freedom of navigation".

"A small misjudgement or error can immediately lead to the beginning of a nuclear war, which will inevitably lead to another world war", it said.

After the successful launch of the intercontinental ballistic missile, Trump tweeted that China should take action by putting a heavy move on North Korea to stop the nonsense.

In a separate meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Trump said the two were tackling "the problem and menace of North Korea". "That doesn't mean we are going to do it", Trump said.

"It would mean that North Korea had a wider procurement network in the former Soviet Union than we had thought,"said Elleman, a missile expert at the International Institute for Strategic Studies who oversaw the dismantling of Soviet-era missiles in Russian Federation and Ukraine two decades ago".

There's still a narrow window for diplomacy in which the U.S., Japan, South Korea and yes, China work together to defuse this crisis.

Other South Korean officials followed up the statement by insisting that Moon is still working with Trump and still supports the idea of "raising pressure" on North Korea, despite an offer of a diplomatic meeting which is extremely contrary to President Trump's anti-diplomacy stand.

On Friday, more than 120 countries at a United Nations meeting approved the first-ever treaty to ban nuclear weapons, but the USA and a handful of other countries abstained from the vote. "The only way out here is diplomacy", said James Clapper, who spent years as a USA intelligence chief in South Korea and was later Director of National Intelligence under Barack Obama.

We share the hope of our government that the North's most important ally - China - can exert the influence to make Kim Jong-un back away from this nuclear precipice.

Amid these rising tensions, South Korea's President Moon Jae-in called for more sanctions against the North and for a peaceful resolution.

Pyongyang's launch of what it claimed to be its first ICBM, the united nations Security Council (UNSC) held an emergency meeting and the US deployed two B-18 strategic bombers to the region, Sputnik reported.
