The U.N. Security Council has issued a strongly worded condemnation of the latest North Korean missile launch after the US agreed to Russia's request to include a call for "dialogue" with Pyongyang in the text.
US Vice President Mike Pence, on a tour of Asian allies, has said repeatedly an "era of strategic patience" with North Korea is over.
The council said North Korea's illegal missile and nuclear activities "are greatly increasing tension in the region and beyond" and expressed "utmost concern" at its "highly destabilizing behavior and flagrant and provocative defiance" of six United Nations sanctions resolutions.
The row between Russian Federation and the United States came ahead of a Security Council ministerial meeting next week on North Korea that will be chaired by US Secretary of States Rex Tillerson.
Residents and local media in Russia's far east reported large military convoys travelling in the direction of the North Korean border since the weekend, in what appear to be contingency plans to contain fallout from a possible military clash between the United States and North Korea.
The council also warned the North of "further significant measures, including sanctions".
South Korea and the United States have also been conducting annual joint military exercises, which the North routinely criticises as a prelude to invasion.

"Without crossing the red line such as a nuclear test or a test launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile, until the April 25 anniversary of the Korean People's Army, North Korea is expected to continue to launch mid-range missiles", said Cheong Seong-chang, a senior research fellow at Sejong Institute outside Seoul.
"Although North Korea attempted a missile launch but failed on April 16, considering the April 25 anniversary of the Korean People's Army, there are concerns that it can make another provocation again at any time", South Korea's acting president Hwang Kyo-ahn told top officials on Thursday.
