WASHINGTON - US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said both economic and diplomatic pressure will continue to be applied to North Korea in the wake of a ballistic missile launch.

"The ongoing testing is disappointing, disturbing and we ask that they cease that," Tillerson said on Sunday in an interview with "Fox News Sunday."

North Korea fired a ballistic missile into waters off its east coast on Sunday, its second missile test in a week.
