The US says it is urging China to use all its leverage to help rein in North Korea's "destabilising" actions.

US officials travelling with Secretary of State John Kerry said Washington wanted Beijing to evoke "a sense of urgency" in its talks with Pyongyang.

North Korea has ratcheted up tensions in the region, threatening nuclear strikes against South Korea and the US.

Meanwhile, the Pentagon has denied a report suggesting Pyongyang is able to mount nuclear warheads on missiles.
