US and South Korean officials say North Korea has fired a medium-range missile, the latest ballistics test by a country speeding up its development of nuclear weapons and missiles.

Anchor: U.S. State Secretary Rex Tillerson has strongly denounced North Korea's Sunday missile launch, calling it disappointing and disturbing.

North Korea Sunday test-fired a ballistic missile, the latest in a series of launches which have sparked worldwide condemnation and threats of tougher United Nations sanctions.

Japanese officials said it landed in waters about 400 km away from Oki Islands in the Sea of Japan (East Sea).

The White House said it was aware of the latest test. Officials travelling in Saudi Arabia with US President Donald Trump said the missile appeared to have a shorter range than the ones Pyongyang fired in recent times.

Diplomatic officials did not say what the agenda was for the Tuesday Security Council meeting, but on earlier such occasions the body has ended its deliberations with a unanimous condemnation of Pyongyang's challenges to the global community.

The official Korean Central News Agency said Monday morning that the military had tested a medium-to-long range ballistic missile called the Pukguksong-2.

Kim approved the deployment of the missile to be used by its military and ordered that it should be rapidly mass-produced, it said.

North Korea is known to be developing both nuclear weapons - it has conducted five nuclear tests - and the missiles capable of delivering those weapons to their target. With a new president in South Korea, debates will continue about how Seoul can convince China to use its leverage on Pyongyang to get it to freeze its nuclear weapons program.

The council diplomats say the closed discussion was requested by the United States, Japan and South Korea and will take place Tuesday. The diplomats spoke on condition of anonymity because the meeting had not been officially announced.

Salman Abedi, responsable del atentado terrorista en Manchester

On April 29, Pyongyang fired a ballistic missile from a Pukchang area but it exploded in mid-air minutes after lift-off.

It marked Pyongyang's eighth missile test this year.

Kim said there's also a possibility that the North is conducting engine tests and other experiments as it pushes for the development of a solid-fuel intercontinental ballistic missile that could potentially reach the US mainland.

The test of a Pukguksong-2 might be part of attempts to stabilize the system before operationally deploying the missiles, said Kim Dong-yub, an analyst at Seoul's Institute for Far Eastern Studies.

The UN Security Council (UNSC) plans to hold an emergency meeting to discuss countermeasures against the North's latest missile provocation.

Oil down as White House proposes selling US oil reserves
When asked whether the participants plan to negotiate an increase in quotas, the minister said: "Not at this point I think". EIA forecasts show that USA shale oil production is expected to rise further in June. "It will grow but there are limits".
