WASHINGTON (Reuters) - White House national security adviser H. R. McMaster said on Sunday that North Korea’s missile test was provocative and that the United States was working with its allies, including China, to develop a range of options.

“This latest missile test just fits into a pattern of provocative and destabilising and threatening behaviour on the part of the North Korean regime,” McMaster said on ABC’s “This Week” programme.

“There is an international consensus now, including the Chinese leadership, that this is a situation that just cannot continue.”
