The US envoy to the UN has urged the Security Council to take the "strongest possible measures" against North Korea after its latest nuclear test.

"The time has come to exhaust all diplomatic means before it is too late," Nikki Haley told an emergency meeting of the council in New York.

The US will circulate a new draft Security Council resolution, hoping for a vote next Monday. South Korea is set to scrap a warhead weight limit on its own missiles.

President Moon Jae-in agreed in a phone call with his US counterpart, Donald Trump, to remove the current cap of 500kg (1,100lb), the South Korean presidential office said.

It carried out live-fire exercises today (04), simulating an attack on the North's nuclear test site.
