The top USA commander in the Pacific, meanwhile, warned that North Korea's nuclear weapons program is "a recipe for disaster", three days after the communist state test-fired what some said was its most successful missile.

The threat to expand sanctions is the latest response from the US following a North Korean ballistic missile test this past weekend.

Reuters notes that the test was detected by the up-and-running components of the THAAD missile shield, which North Korea and its patron China strongly oppose, in part because its sensory systems are so powerful.
