An EU spokesperson has told North Korea that the test-firing of a ballistic missile constitutes a "threat to global peace and security" as Pyongyang ratchets up tensions in the region.
North Korea's past satellite rocket launches have been called clandestine tests of ICBM technology, but it is not believed to have tested a true intercontinental ballistic missile yet.
The sanctions, however, have done little to deter the country from pursuing its nuclear and missile ambitions, which Pyongyang sees as a deterrent against a potential invasion by its adversaries.
As the New York Times wrote, the North Korea launch "showed that it was an intermediate-range ballistic missile that could target key United States military bases in the Pacific, including those in Guam, missile experts said".
Earlier this month, Trump said he would be willing to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un "under the right circumstances".
Japanese officials said the missile flew for about 30 minutes, traveling about 800 kilometers (500 miles) and reaching an unusually high altitude of 2,000 kilometers (1,240 miles). "With the missile impacting so close to Russian soil - in fact, closer to Russia than to Japan - the President can not imagine that Russia is pleased", the White House said, referring to U.S. President Donald Trump.
This latest test comes only days after the South Korea elected President Moon Jae-in, who has said he will aim to improve ties with Pyongyang.
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told reporters that the launch was "absolutely unacceptable" and that Japan will respond resolutely.
Pyongyang has been rapidly advancing its missile program, with a stated goal of achieving a functioning intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) that could threaten the USA mainland.
The missile flew for half an hour and reached an unusually high altitude before landing in the Sea of Japan, the South Korean, Japanese and USA militaries said.
The forum also raises the possibility of officials from North Korea, China, United States, Russia, South Korea and Japan holding informal discussions on the sidelines of the event.
Sunday's launch is the first in two weeks since the last attempt to fire a missile ended in a failure just minutes into flight.
David Wright, co-director of the Global Security Program at the Union of Concerned Scientists, said the missile could have a range of 4,500 km (about 2,800 miles) - considerably longer than Pyongyang's current missiles.
China, North Korea's most important ally and key provider of food and fuel aid, has sought to cool tensions over Pyongyang's nuclear and missile programs, repeatedly calling for dialogue.
Such rhetoric contrasts sharply with the tensions between the United States and North Korea. The latest "provocation" should serve as a call for all nations to implement far stronger sanctions against the North, it said. She says more analysis was needed.
But he slammed the missile test as a "reckless provocation" after holding an emergency meeting with national security advisers.
On Saturday, a top North Korean diplomat in charge of U.S. relations, Choe Son Hui, told reporters in Beijing that Pyongyang would be willing to meet with the Trump administration for negotiations "if the conditions are set".
"If the other countries fail to act in concert, North Korea will probably keep using this tactic, pretending to be talking while carrying out more tests".
The North attempted but failed to test-launch ballistic missiles four consecutive times in the past two months but has conducted a variety of missile testing since the beginning of a year ago at an unprecedented pace.
