WASHINGTON - The US envoy for North Korea will travel to Japan and Thailand next week to discuss how to increase pressure on Pyongyang after its latest ballistic missile test, the US State Department said on Friday.

North Korea, formally called the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), last week tested its most powerful intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), saying the device could reach all of the United States.

Joseph Yun, the US special representative for North Korea policy, will travel to Japan and Thailand December 11-15 to meet government officials "to discuss ways to strengthen the pressure campaign following the DPRK’s latest ballistic missile test," the State Department said in a brief written statement.

"The United States looks forward to continuing its partnership with both these nations so that the DPRK will return to credible talks on denuclearization," it added.
