President Trump: North Korea missile test 'disrespects' China



North Korea has test-fired another ballistic missile, South Korean and US military officials say.

The missile exploded shortly after take-off, they said - the second failed launch in the past fortnight.


US President Donald Trump accused North Korea of showing "disrespect" towards China and its president.


The missile was fired from a site in South Pyeongan province, north of Pyongyang, in the early hours of Saturday local time, South Korea said.


It came just hours after the United Nations Security Council discussed North Korea's missile programme.
Mr Trump tweeted: "North Korea disrespected the wishes of China & its highly respected President when it launched, though unsuccessfully, a missile today. Bad!"


Mr Trump recently hosted Chinese President Xi Jinping and praised him for "trying very hard" on North Korea.
