"The forthcoming measures to be taken by the DPRK will cause the U.S. the greatest pain and suffering it had ever gone through in its entire history", said a statement, which used the official name for the North. North Korea gets almost all of its oil supply from China, with a much smaller amount coming from Russian Federation or the open market.

"If we put firm pressure on North Korea such that it realises it cannot develop missiles, it will accept dialogue and we can progress with diplomatic efforts", Onodera told public broadcaster NHK on Sunday. "We are done trying to prod the regime to do the right thing" and instead are taking steps to prevent it "from doing the wrong thing".

Ms Haley last week dismissed this proposal as "insulting".

"We've said the North can't have nuclear weapons, we've used this rhetoric and we've had no means to prevent it, and this goes back to the assumption that North Korea wasn't going to last so we wouldn't have anything to worry about".

Washington has said military action remains an option in dealing with North Korea and threatened to cut economic ties with countries that continue to trade with the it. "China does not want North Korea to collapse, but wants a stick to get it to the negotiating table".
