Pyongyang is threatening a sixth nuclear test.

They were expected to discuss ways of containing North Korea's missile and nuclear weapons activities as well as the economic fallout over the deployment in South Korea of the US missile defense system called THAAD.

Her remarks seem to indicate a difference in nuance from U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who said in a press conference in Seoul on March 17 that the pathway to dialogue "can only be achieved by denuclearizing, giving up their weapons of mass destruction".

"A remark introducing a nuclear-freeze-in-exchange-for-dialogue card through the United Nations ambassador, not the White House or U.S. State Department, is noteworthy", Kim Yong-hyun, a North Korea studies professor at Dongguk University, told the JoongAng Ilbo.

Any country that did not look at putting new sanctions on North Korea was, in effect, helping the isolated nation, she said.

North Korea's deputy U.N. envoy said on Friday that the United States needed to roll back its "hostile policy" toward the country before there could be talks between the pair.

However, he has also said he is open to talks with Mr Kim.

While North Korea regularly tests shorter range missiles, it is also working to master the technology needed to field nuclear-tipped missiles that can reach the USA mainland. Haley said, adding that Russian Federation had it "all wrong".

"We're going to make sure we put the pressure on them economically, diplomatically, politically and internationally in any way that we need to", she said.

"What about North Korea intimidating us?"

Symantec and Kaspersky Lab said on Monday that some code in an earlier version of the WannaCry software had also appeared in programs used by the Lazarus Group, which researchers from many companies have identified as a North Korea-run hacking operation.

"You either support North Korea, or you support us", she said, adding countries have to "pick a side".

The weekend launch was the first since a new liberal president took office in South Korea.

Seoul and Washington have argued that the missile system is aimed at North Korean aggression, while China sees it as a threat to its own security because its radar can peer deep into northeastern China.
