"They should refrain from issuing more threats".

Ambassador Cui Tiankai on Friday told reporters at an embassy event: "Honestly, I think the United States should be doing ... much more than now, so that there's real effective global co-operation on this issue". "They should do more to find effective ways to resume dialogue and negotiation".

Cui on Friday cautioned against putting China-US trade on the table.

Meanwhile, Russian President Vladimir Putin and his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron also denounced the new missile launch by North Korea and called for the resumption of "direct talks" to address the Korean Peninsula issue during a phone conversation, the Kremlin press service said.

Hales's exit was the start of a slump that saw England lose three wickets for four runs as 64 for one soon became 68 for four. The key passage of play started when paceman Brathwaite bowled Alex Hales for a rapid 43.

The Chinese government, however, has firmly resisted against the notion that it has much control over Pyongyang.

The DPRK reportedly fired a missile over Japan's northern island Hokkaido and into the Pacific Ocean on Friday, which came only days after the UN Security Council voted in favor of a resolution toughening sanctions on the DPRK. It came on the heels of the adoption of a United Nations resolution imposing harsher sanctions against Pyongyang. According to the state-run KCNA news agency, leader Kim Jong-un said: "Our goal is to make the rulers of the U.S. dare not talk about military option regarding us".

Trump tweeted earlier this month, vowing that the USA was considering ceasing trade with nations doing business with North Korea.

Kim further vowed to complete the country's nuclear weapons program despite growing sanctions against Pyongyang.

"Of course, we are also concerned about the safety of the 242,000 Filipinos in Japan who may be impacted by these provocative acts", Cayetano said.

On August 22, the USA government unilaterally sanctioned Russian firms engaged in crude oil trade with North Korea, freezing their assets among other measures.

Polls also show that most Americans disapprove of the president's bellicose approach to the North Korean regime, and fear US military strikes against the country.
