UNITED NATIONS - The United States is making progress in talks with North Korean ally China on imposing new UN sanctions on Pyongyang over its latest missile test, but the "true test" will be what measures Russia agrees to, US Ambassador Nikki Haley said on Tuesday.

Haley told reporters she was pleased with the initial response from China on a US proposal for new UN sanctions and said China had showed 'seriousness.'

"We know that China has been sharing and negotiating with Russia," said Haley, adding that the "true test will be what they worked out with Russia."
