North Korea's leader Kim Jong-Un said this test showed that North Korea had become a full nuclear power.

Haley's warning comes on the heels of the third intercontinental missile test launch that North Korea announced earlier this week, claiming now its missiles can hit any location in the United States.

The test-fired missile is a Hwasong-15 that is an updated version of an earlier missile, which suggests North Korea has improved its ability to strike the USA mainland with a nuclear-tipped missile, 38 North, a website that monitors and analyzes North Korea, reported after the launch.

"I think the Chinese are doing a lot".

Haley called on all nations to sever all ties with North Korea and continued with the warnings saying if China did not cut off its oil supply to North Korea, the US would "take the oil situation into our own hands", suggesting further escalation of tensions in the region.

The proposal called for North Korea to curb its nuclear and missile tests, in return for the U.S. giving up on joint military drills with South Korea in the region, but it was rejected by Washington.

North Korean-owned businesses such as the Chilbosan Hotel in Shenyang, the biggest city in northeastern China, face an uncertain future as United Nations sanctions against Pyongyang-owned overseas businesses loom.

"China's priority is stability in the region, as well as domestic stability, and part of that is an alliance with its neighbor North Korea", Alison Evans, deputy head of Asia-Pacific country risk at IHS Markit, told CNBC on Thursday.

"China and Russian Federation have a common stance on the Korean Peninsula issue, maintaining contact with each other".

Mr Trump also "emphasised the need for China to use all available levers to convince North Korea to end its provocations and return to the path of denuclearisation".

A woman who answered the phone at the North Korean consulate in Shenyang said she didn't know what would happen to North Korean businesses and joint ventures in China once United Nations sanctions kicked in.

"The problem is that January isn't that far away so it doesn't give the North Korean partners much time to sell off their portion of the company", said Cheng Xiaohe, a North Korea specialist at Beijing's Renmin University.

However, the state-owned media outlet did not mention whether China had agreed to Trump's request regarding the oil.
