The official also pointed out that U.S. President Donald Trump has even demanded China stop its crude oil supply to the North.

After a 75-day pause, North Korea test-fired a Hwasong-15 intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) on Wednesday, which flew 13,000 km, and Pyongyang proclaimed it was capable of putting the whole of the United States mainland within its range.

The test prompted a warning from the United States that North Korea's leadership would be "utterly destroyed" if war were to break out, a statement that drew sharp criticism from Russian Federation.

South Korea said it expected Pyongyang to pause its provocative missile testing program following Wednesday's successful flight of its new Hwasong-15 missile, which can reach the USA mainland. South Korean President Moon told his US counterpart that while Pyongyang's latest missile launch reflects its most advanced technology so far, it still lacks critical technology that would actually make its nuclear and missile weapons development complete.

An interesting moment in the episode was between Luv Tyagi and Priyank where the boys talked about their "friend" Hina Khan . Hina too was named as the villain so even she got a grilling dose from the host for using red chilli powder in the task.

"Kim Jong Un is acting in a very calculative, clever manner", said South Korea Defence Minister Song Young-moo.

Pyongyang has said the test was a "breakthrough".

The Hwasong-15, Moon said during the phone call, "is clearly the most advanced missile to date which North Korea has developed, but its technology for reentry and for guidance in the terminal stage have not yet been proven, nor is it certain whether [North Korea] has acquired the technology for miniaturizing nuclear warheads". The call marked the second of its kind in two days.

"For now if there are no sudden changes in situation or external factors, we feel there is a high chance North Korea will refrain from engaging in provocations for a while", said Lee Yoo-jin, deputy spokeswoman at the Unification Ministry.

The South Korean Air Force will send several models of its own fighter jets and support aircraft to take part in the drills, where the allies will conduct strikes on mock North Korean missile and nuclear sites, as well as missile transporters, South Korea's Yonhap News Agency reports.

The country's Air Force declared the creation of a airborne intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) unit responsible for monitoring the North Korea's activities, working in close coordination with the United States.

"We must prevent a situation in which North Korea misjudges the situation and blackmails us with nuclear weapons or in which the USA contemplates a preemptive strike", Moon said during a full session of the National Security Council (NSC) over which he presided on the day of North Korea's missile test launch.

Moon told Trump evidence is lacking North Korea has achieved atmospheric re-entry or warhead miniaturization, a spokesman said.
