"I think it's important that North Korea knows we're not trying to pick a fight, so don't try and give us one", she said.

On Sunday, North Korea attempted to launch another missile, but failed, according to the data of the United States air forces - the missile exploded nearly rights after the launch. "They shouldn't try and play at this point".

Amid heightened tension on the Korean peninsula, North Korea has escalated a war of words with the United States, warning of full-out nuclear war if Washington takes military action against it over its nuclear and missile ambitions. Developing a hydrogen bomb is also a declared priority of North Korea, officially the Democratic People's Republic of Korea or DPRK.

The video comes as tensions continue to rise between the USA and North Korea and shows an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM), being used to wipe out an American city. The UN Security Council failed to adopt a statement condemning the missile test conducted by North Korea on April 15 because of disagreements between Russian Federation and the United States.

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.

"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 worldwide pressure. sanctions and discussions between the Security Council members to take measures", he said.

North Korea watchers said Tuesday they had observed unusual activity at the reclusive country's nuclear test site - workers playing volleyball. We've said it as clearly as we can possibly say it.

A concept paper circulated to council members ahead of the meeting states that North Korea's "pursuit of weapons of mass destruction represents one of the gravest threats to global peace and security the Security Council faces".
