Shinzo Abe calls for enforcement of sanctions against North Korea

People react as they march past foreign journalists and the stand with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un during a military parade marking the 105th birth anniversary of the country's founding father Kim Il Sung in Pyongyang 15 April 2017

"It is still a diplomatically led effort", Mattis said, highlighting sanctions recently put in place by the U.N. Security Council, as well as the efforts of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

On Tuesday, South Korea and the USA launched military drills in a village near the North Korean border, a day after Russia and China - two countries with close ties to North Korea - staged a similar military exercise off the Russian far eastern port of Vladivostok, which is not far from the Russia-North Korea border.

On Sept 3, Pyongyang detonated its sixth nuclear device, seen as the most powerful ever conducted by the Asian country.

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley said the sanctions need time to work and maintained hope that Pyongyang would return to the negotiating table.

"If North Korea keeps on with this reckless behavior, the United States has to defend itself or defend its allies in anyway, North Korea will be destroyed, and we know that and none of us want that".

Human Rights Watch, one of several worldwide organizations advocating for improved monitoring of rights in North Korea, said in a statement issued Wednesday the U.N. Committee on the Rights of the Child should "press the North Korean government to protect children who are victims of sexual abuse and harassment".

"To the contrary, it just adds to tensions and makes achieving the goal of denuclearization on the peninsula appear more complicated and hard to resolve", he added, responding to a question about Mattis' comments at a regular briefing.

"I spoke with President Moon of South Korea last night". The country flight-tested two intercontinental ballistic missiles in July.

However, they fell short of a full embargo proposed by Washington due to opposition from China and Russian Federation, which have refused to sign on to any resolution that threatened to cripple the North Korean regime.

China's Communist Party newspaper, the People's Daily, criticised the United States for demanding that Beijing put more pressure on North Korea to rein in its weapons programmes.

"The so-called "China's responsibility theory" is essentially moral kidnapping", the People's Daily said in a commentary.

The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute says developments in North Korea's nuclear program "contributed to international political instability with potentially serious knock-on effects".

Instead, he said, the worldwide community should strictly implement the sanctions imposed on North Korea by the U.N. Security Council.

The US flew four F-35B stealth fighter jets and two B-1B bombers over the Korean peninsula on Monday in a blunt show of force.
