Lavrov's remarks came a day after U.S. President Donald Trump said "additional major sanctions" will be imposed on North Korea in the wake of a ballistic missile test.

On Thursday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov accused the United States of attempting to provoke North Korea, saying the Washington is trying to make Pyongyang take "extreme measures".

Haley said during her speech at the United Nations headquarter that President Trump has called President Xi to stop all oil shipments to North Korea.

However South Korea's unification ministry cast doubt Friday on the North's claim it had mastered the technology to ensure a missile survives re-entry into the Earth's atmosphere.

U.S. ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, on Wednesday called on all countries to sever relations with Pyongyang, including cutting trade links and expelling North Korean workers.

North Korea, in an announcement broadcast on state TV, said this week it had successfully tested a new type of intercontinental ballistic missile called Hwasong-15.
