President Donald Trump honored the resolve of the nation's Air Force on Friday, warning foes and global terrorist groups that the US military would respond to any threats.

And Trump said the country had "once again shown its utter contempt for its neighbors and for the entire world community".

Friday's briefing comes after North Korea conducted another ballistic missile test over Japan, further escalating tensions in the region.

McMaster said new sanctions on North Korea are just going into effect and need to be given a chance to work.

H.R. McMaster spoke about North Korea Friday during a White House briefing about the upcoming U.N. General Assembly meeting next week. Haley noted that the US and the U.N. have saddled the hermit nation with crippling sanctions. He calls on all nations to enforce them and do everything they can to address the threat and prevent war.

The launch is the second to flyover Japan in less than a month, and the first since North Korea's sixth nuclear test and new United Nations sanctions on the country.

"We ought to make clear what's different about this approach is that we're out of time", McMaster said.

"For those who have been commenting about the lack of a military option, well, there is a military option".

The UN Security Council held an emergency meeting on Friday in NY to discuss the crisis, though no further sanctions were expected to be agreed.

"We have strangled their economic situation", she said. The new sanctions, coupled with those before them, now ban over 90 percent of North Korea's publicly reported 2016 exports - including coal, textiles, iron and seafood, but not revenues from overseas workers. On Monday, it unanimously approved its toughest sanctions yet on North Korea over its nuclear test.
