North Korea has described the September 3 incident as a test of an advanced hydrogen bomb for a long-range missile, marking a dramatic escalation of the regime's stand-off with the United States and its allies.

On Saturday, North Korea's foreign minister warned that a strike against the US mainland is "inevitable" because President Donald Trump mocked leader Kim Jong Un with the nickname "Little Rocket Man".

She praised US President Donald Trump for persuading China to become involved in the effort to curb North Korea's nuclear ambitions. The U.S. Geological Survey and the European Mediterranean Seismological Center also detected the quakes but could not confirm their cause.

President Trump, though, mocked the regime's leader in a series of Sunday tweets, referring to Kim Jong Un as "Rocket Man". USA nuclear weapons were withdrawn from the Korean peninsula in the early 1990s at the close of the Cold War.

China and Russian Federation initially opposed measures to restrict oil exports to North Korea, but then agreed to reduced measures.

Foreign Minister Wang Yi said that in a complex and volatile world, China is an "anchor of stability".

Trump tweeted on Friday, saying Pyongyang would be tested like never before.
