China called on Tuesday for calm and restraint after North Korea launched a ballistic missile and US President Donald Trump said perhaps China would "put a heavy move" on North Korea to "end this nonsense."

Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said U.N. Security Council resolutions had clear rules on North Korea's missile launches and China opposed it going against those rules. He was speaking at a daily news briefing.

North Korea said it had successfully test-launched an intercontinental ballistic missile on a steep trajectory. An expert said, if fired at a conventional trajectory, the missile could possibly hit the US state of Alaska.
