1.30pm: Donald Trump has vowed to “very strongly” confront North Korea over its missile tests, when he addressed a press conference in Poland’s capital Warsaw.

Following a meeting with his Polish counterpart, Andrzej Duda, Mr Trump labelled the hermit state “a threat.”

“They are behaving in a very, very dangerous manner and something will have to be done,” Mr Trump underlined.

11.00am: Boris Johnson has condemned North Korea’s intercontinental ballistic missile test “reckless”, and has called on China to increase pressure on Pyongyang.

”What the North Koreans are doing is reckless, it’s indefensible, it’s in defiance of (United Nations) resolutions,” the Foreign Secretary told the BBC.

“The single most important thing is that the country with the most direct economic relationship with North Korea, that is China, has got to continue to put on the pressure.

“And in the last six months or so we are seeing some real changes in Beijing’s attitude to North Korea and that’s got to go further.”

10.10am: Donald Trump has said that the US is considering some “pretty severe things” in response to North Korea’s “very, very bad behaviour”.

Speaking alongside Polish President Andrzej Duda, Mr Trump said that he would look at what happens over the coming weeks and months, but did not draw any red lines.

“We must confront the threat from North Korea, that’s what it is it’s a threat, and we will confront it very strongly,” Mr Trump said.

“President Duda and I call on all nations to confront this global threat and publicly demonstrate to North Korea that there are consequences for their very, very bad behaviour.”

“There are severe things that we are thinking about, but it doesn’t mean we are going to do them. I dont draw red lines, we will take a look at what happens over the coming weeks and months.

“It is a shame they are behaving this way. They are behaving in a dangerous manner and something will have to be done about it.”
