France says pressure needed to stop North Korea crossing next nuclear hurdle

But that test hasn't happened yet, though North Korean leader Kim Jong-un attempted to launch a missile Sunday that the Pentagon said blew up nearly immediately after launch.

United Nations diplomats said the proposed statement had consensus from the other 14 Council members, including China, North Korea's biggest ally and a Council permanent member.

According to The Mirror the video was shown at the Day of the Sun festival, a holiday celebrating Kim Jong-Un's grandfather, and was created to demonstrate the power and strength of the North Korean army.

"China is scared of chaos and destabilisation of the regime that would result in millions of refugees in the region so we can make progress through global pressure. sanctions and discussions between the Security Council members to take measures", he said.

The 38 North monitoring group said satellite imagery captured Sunday showed personnel at the guard barracks and two other areas at the Punggye-ri test site playing the popular game.

Next week, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will chair a minister-level meeting on the North Korean issue at the UN.

With tension mounting between Pyongyang and Washington, analysts had thought they would see activity suggesting preparations for an underground explosion at the Punggye-ri nuclear test site and were not expecting what the photos, taken on Sunday by a commercial satellite, revealed. We've said it as clearly as we can possibly say it.

Guterres singled out the countries "in the front line" of contacts with North Korea - the U.S., China, South Korea, Russia and Japan - and said everybody involved should "make sure that everything is done for the threat represented by the development in relation to missiles and in relation to the potential for nuclear capability not to become a threat to the global community". You know, the ball is in their court. "They shouldn't try and play at this point".
