Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Friday that Washington would send a bad message if it walked away from a 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, Reuters reported.

"President Trump called Chinese president Xi this morning and told him that we've come to the point where China must cut off the oil from North Korea".

USA and Chinese generals took part in an unusual set of security talks on Wednesday - just hours after North Korea's most powerful missile test yet - focused on how the American and Chinese militaries might communicate in a crisis, South China Morning Post reports.

Trump has vowed to prevent North Korea from having the capability to strike the USA mainland with a nuclear-tipped missile - using military force if necessary.

The Trump administration threatened new sanctions on North Korea after the reclusive government broke 10 weeks of relative quiet with its most powerful weapon test yet.

"We're really asking them to please restrain more of the oil, not cut it off completely", Tillerson said in remarks at the State Department. China is North Korea's neighbor and its sole major trading partner. Officials insisted the dialogue was not centred on North Korea or anything else in particular.

An editorial in the China Daily argued that the latest test may have been prompted by the Trump administration's decision to label North Korea a sponsor of state terrorism. "It is unavoidable and North Korea deserves it, particularly given that its development of the Hwasong-15 [missile], raises the threat level toward the worldwide community and the United States", said Zhao Tong, a fellow at the Carnegie Tsinghua Center for Global Policy.

In addition, the Yalv River Bridge, which represents China and North Korea's friendship and is the main crossing point between the two countries, was temporarily closed last week.
