President Donald Trump says he and South Korean President Moon Jae-in (jah-yihn) have discussed North Korea in their latest call.

USA options range from everything to accepting North Korea as a nuclear power to using military force in a bid to destroy its arsenal and even oust leader Kim Jong Un.

The US leader will host a lunch with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and South Korea's Moon Jae-in on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, Trump's National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster told a White House briefing.

"After seeing your capabilities and commitment here today, I am more confident than ever that our options in addressing this threat are both effective and overwhelming", Trump said in his address to air force personnel and families on the 70th anniversary of the US Air Force.

"For those ... who have been commenting on a lack of a military option, there is a military option", he said, adding that it would not be the Trump administration's preferred choice.

Kim had told his top officials that the goal of Pyongyang's efforts "is to establish the equilibrium of real force with the U.S. and make the USA rulers dare not talk about military option", according to the nation's state media.

North Korea yesterday fired an intermediate range ballistic missile over Japan and into the Pacific Ocean.

Trump has also threatened "fire and fury" in response to North Korea's threats.

Seoul and Washington will seek "stronger, and more practical" measures against North Korea, South Korea's presidential office said Sunday.

"(Moon and Trump) agreed to bring stronger and more effective sanctions and pressure to make the North Korean regime realize that provocations will bring tougher diplomatic isolation, and economic pressure that will (put the regime) on the path to ruin", Cheong Wa Dae spokesman Park Soo-hyun said.

"I believe it will further North Korea's isolation - diplomatic and economic isolation - because more and more nations are realising there's simply no collaboration with the global community". Any further steps would need to be worked out with the agreement of the entire UN Security Council, he said.

"I don't think that he'll stray too much outside of the boundaries of that", Collins said.

"After seeing your capabilities and commitment here today, I am more confident than ever that our options in addressing this threat are both effective and overwhelming", Trump said inside an airplane hangar, surrounded by USA airmen and with a looming stealth bomber positioned behind him.

"The two leaders agreed to work closely and to put stronger and more effective sanctions and pressure on North Korea in cooperation with the worldwide community", South Korea's presidential spokesman Park Soo-hyun said.
