"We are going to send a very strong, unified message to North Korea", Haley said on Tuesday.

Abe's remarks followed talks with South Korea's special envoy, lawmaker Moon Hee-sang, who is in Tokyo to deliver a letter from President Moon Jae-in.

The meeting came after North Korea successfully test-fired a new intermediate-range ballistic missile on Sunday.

The test was in open defiance of UN Security Council resolutions and the worldwide community has widely condemned the launch. The ministry has been reviewing ways to restore it. "But there are no specific steps in the offing", Lee Duk-haeng, a spokesman for South Horea's unification ministry, told reporters.

"If you are a country that is supplying or supporting North Korea, we will call you out on it", Haley said.

The North has staged two atomic tests and dozens of missile tests in its quest to build a missile capable of delivering a nuclear warhead to the USA mainland.

The North, which has defied all calls to rein in its weapons programmes, even from its lone ally, China, has been working on a missile, mounted with a nuclear warhead, capable of striking the United States mainland.

There is a hotline at a liaison office located at the truce village of Panmunjom, which was set up in 1971.

Moon's envoy to Washington, South Korean media mogul Hong Seok-hyun, said Trump spoke of being willing to use engagement to ensure peace, Hong said in comments carried by television.

The hotline at the truce village of Panmunjom in the Demilitarized Zone that divides the peninsula has been dormant since North Korea severed the channels after Seoul closed a joint industrial complex in the border city of Kaesong.

The United States, which has 28,500 troops in South Korea to guard against the North Korean threat, has called on China to do more to rein in its neighbour.

China for its part has been infuriated by the US deployment of an advanced Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-missile system in South Korea, saying it was a threat to its security and would do nothing to ease tension with Pyongyang.

Mr Trump wants South Korea to pay for the system, but Mr Moon has said he will reconsider the deployment, because of strong domestic opposition and also because of Chinese anger that Thaad upsets the regional strategic status quo and its suspicions that it will be used to spy on it.

Numerous launches were considered failures, but experts said the one fired Sunday was a clear success and showed the country was making major advances.
