US Vice President Kamala Harris convened a meeting of world leaders on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation in Bangkok, Thailand, to discuss North Korea's launch of the intercontinental ballistic missile that landed in the sea at approximately 210 km (130 miles) west of Hokkaido, in Japan.

Harris urged North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to re-engage in a “serious and sustained diplomacy”.

According to the White House, Harris' request was joined by Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, South Korean Prime Minister Han Duck-soo, Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, New Zealand Prime Minister , Jacinda Ardern, and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau joined Harris.

White House National Security Council spokesman Adrienne Watson reported that the United States president had been informed about the North Korean launch.

This launch is a blatant violation of multiple Security Council resolutions [de las Naciones Unidas] and needlessly escalates tensions and risks destabilizing the security situation in the region,” Watson wrote in a statement. “This action demonstrates that the DPRK continues to prioritize its illegal weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missile programs. for the welfare of his people."

Adrienne Watson also indicated that The US would take the necessary steps to "ensure the security of the American homeland and the Republic of Korea and Japanese allies."

while the US Indo-Pacific Command said in a statement on the North Korean missile launch "we are aware of the DPRK ballistic missile launch and we are consulting closely with the Republic of Korea (ROK) and Japan, as well as other regional allies and partners. The United States condemns these actions and calls on the DPRK to refrain from further illegal and destabilizing acts."

While North Korea has tested an unprecedented number of missiles this year, launching an ICBM has been rare.
