The U.S. Secretary Of State, Rex Tillerson, categorically mentioned China and Russia, as he urged the international community to take direct action against North Korea after it fired yet another ballistic missile over Japan on Thursday.

The latest missile launch comes on the heels of the U.N. Security Council’s vote to slap fresh tighter sanctions on the North, including restricting its oil imports and banning textile exports, writes the BBC.

The U.N. Security Council is due to hold an emergency meeting on Friday to discuss the latest missile launch, although it remains unclear what further action can be taken against Pyongyang, which faces a raft of global embargoes, notes The Guardian
