"I personally think he slaps the right people, he hugs the right people, and he comes out with (the) USA being very strong, in the end", Haley, speaking at the White House, said of Trump's speech.

US President Donald Trump will host a lunch meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and South Korean President Moon Jae In next Thursday in NY, a senior White House official said Friday.

US Secretary of Defence James Mattis spoke over phone with his Japanese counterpart Itsunori Onodera following the latest North Korean missile launch, the Pentagon said.

During the 25-minute call, Trump and Moon condemned the latest missile launch by North Korea, pledging to work with the worldwide community to implement the latest UN Security Council resolution.

Trump will meet with leaders from Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America throughout the week, but his remarks - scheduled for Tuesday morning - will be the president's highest-profile opportunity to explain his foreign policy vision couched in his "America first" agenda.

"We will defend our people, our nations, and our civilisation from all who dare to threaten our way of life".

Just two days ago, North Korea fired a ballistic missile over the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido, the latest in a series of missile tests defying the worldwide community.

"For those who have said, and been commenting about a lack of a military option, there is a military option".

Trump's United Nations envoy called North Korea "reckless".

How has North Korea responded in the five weeks since President Donald Trump threated Pyongyang with "fire and fury?"

Trump called Kim Jong-un a rocket man as North Korea recently launched many ballistic missiles and also conducted its most powerful nuclear test.

Moon and Trump also agreed to meet on the sidelines of the upcoming UN General Assembly in NY to further discuss related issues, Park said.

"I don't think that he'll stray too much outside of the boundaries of that", Collins said.

Cheong Wa Dae officials earlier said Moon and Trump will be joined by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in NY for a three-way summit.

"The two leaders agreed to further strengthen the close cooperation between South Korea and the United States, and put more practical pressure on North Korea based on their cooperation to make North Korea realize it will only become more isolated diplomatically and face additional economic pressure if it continues to make provocations and eventually enter the path of collapse", Park said of the telephone conversation between Moon and Trump held earlier in the day.

They said the South Korean and USA leaders were also expected to hold a bilateral summit.
