"I don t deny we are targeting new individuals including North Korean nationals involved in this murder and we will use all legal channels to apprehend them".

Kim attended Saturday's test at the Sohae launch site, according to the Korean Central News Agency, which said the test was meant to confirm the "new type" of engine's thrust power and gauge the reliability of its control system and structural safety.

North Korea is under an arms embargo by the United Nations due to its refusal to cooperate with worldwide agencies over alleged nuclear arms.

"Despite setting up since 2005 and approaching the police, army and such with their products, they have been unsuccessful", Khalid said. While he did not refer specifically to the rocket-engine test, he said Kim Jong Un was "acting very, very badly".

South Korea's military declined to comment. Any failed nuclear test in the area could potentially cause two disasters, Thae said. It reportedly took place at the Sohae Satellite Launching Ground, in North Pyongan Province.

Engines used in the Long March 2 satellite launcher were later repurposed for the "development of the DF-5 ballistic missile - China's first true intercontinental range missile", according to David Wright, co-director of the Union of Concerned Scientists.

'It appears that North Korea has worked out much of its development of the first-stage rocket booster'. There is a major effort underway to keep track of North Korean mobile launchers.

Mr Trump criticised North Korea on Twitter at the end of last week, writing that the country "has been "playing" the United States for years".

However, it might be hard to track down those mobile systems.

Although neither side brought up the subject publicly, Tillerson was expected to raise the prospect of financial penalties on Chinese companies and banks that do business with close ally North Korea.

"The more North Korea develops solid fueled missiles that are road-mobile, the more hard that task becomes", said Albright. As Paris is to France, Seoul is to South Korea: It is the hub of the 11th-largest economy in the world.

"People tend to walk away from this [notion] because we just don't want another North Korean War", he said.

"Through this test, it is found that engine function has made meaningful progress but further analysis is needed for exact thrust and possible uses", Lee Jin-woo, the spokesman for the South Korean defence ministry, told a briefing.

To contain North Korea's response, any initial pre-emptive military action against it would have to be massive, which Albright does not think is a likely option.
