Two days after, US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said that the United States was prepared to use the full range of capabilities, including military options, to defend the country and its allies against North Korea.

While China has been angered by North Korea's repeated nuclear and missile tests, it also blames the United States and South Korea for worsening tension with their military exercises and not doing enough to get talks back on track, as Beijing has proposed.

Seoul's acting Red Cross chief Kim Sun Hyang said it wants separate talks at the border village on August 1 to discuss family reunions. The aim would be to end "all acts of hostility" around the inter-Korean Military Demarcation Line, according to a Defense Ministry statement cited by the Yonhap News Agency.

Despite Washington's calls for action, trade between China and its neighbour increased 10.5 per cent to $2.5 billion in the first six months of the year compared to the same period last year, including a 29.1 per cent jump in exports.

The Koreas last convened for military talks in late 2014.

Its most recent ballistic missile test may have shown it to have the capability of reaching USA territories with a long-range, nuclear armed weapon.

China insists none of its current trade with Pyongyang is in violation of global sanctions.
