WASHINGTON - US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Tuesday strongly condemned North Korea's launch of an apparent intercontinental ballistic missile and urged the international community to take new steps to press Pyongyang to halt development of nuclear arms.

"In addition to implementing all existing UN sanctions, the international community must take additional measures to enhance maritime security, including the right to interdict maritime traffic" traveling to North Korea, Tillerson said in a statement.

Tillerson said the United States and Canada would convene a meeting of UN countries, including South Korea, Japan and other affected nations, to discuss "how the global community can counter North Korea's threat to international peace."
