Donald and Melania Trump depart the White House
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders will be joined by National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley.
US President Donald Trump has scheduled talks with leaders of Japan and South Korea to address the crisis.
He saidNorth Korea's launch hours earlier showed Pyongyang's "utter contempt for its neighbors and for the entire world community".
"I think it's a signal that the USA takes the General Assembly much less seriously than it did under President Obama", said Gowan. He backed up his words with action, ordering a test launch of South Korean missiles into the sea, on a trajectory precisely long enough to have wiped out the launch site for North Korea's ICBM if the weapons were aimed in that direction. Though they aren't their top choices for the region, Haley and McMaster said, they are available to the President.
South Korea's military reported the missile reached an altitude of about 770 kilometers (475 miles) and flew 3,700 kilometers (2,300 miles), far enough to reach the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam.
BENNETT: Haley and national security adviser H.R. McMaster outlined the president's goals for next week's United Nations summit.
On the other hand, the USA and South Korea have announced diminishing willingness to talk to North Korea as it continues its provocative missile launches and nuclear tests.

The three global goals Trump will emphasize on the visit are "peace", "prosperity" and "sovereignty", McMaster said. Some 25 million people live in the metropolitan area of Seoul, U.S. ally South Korea's capital, well within range of the North's extensive artillery.
The launch is the second to flyover Japan in less than a month, and the first since North Korea's sixth nuclear test and new United Nations sanctions on the country.
During his speech, Trump condemned North Korea's latest destabilizing action and indicated that the U.S.is prepared to respond militarily. "We must make North Korea understand this", Abe said.
Standing before a B-2 stealth bomber and a vast United States flag, Donald Trump on Friday lashed out at North Korea warned that advanced United States weaponry could make the souls of America's enemies "crumble".
U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson also called for "new measures" against North Korea and said, "These continued provocations only deepen North Korea's diplomatic and economic isolation".
At the beginning of this year, North Korea's Kim announced plans to develop an intercontinental ballistic missile that could strike the US mainland.
Previous administrations have pressed the U.N.to embrace change.
