The United States and Japan have called for an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council on North Korea on Tuesday, after Pyongyang's latest missile test.

US ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, said in a tweet that "there are no excuses that justify North Korea's actions."

Meanwhile, North Korea said on Monday that the newly developed mid-to-long range missile test fired on Sunday, was aimed at verifying the capability to carry a "large scale heavy nuclear warhead."
