    US President Donald Trump says holding discussions with North Korea is not the answer to increasing regional tensions.

    Pyongyang has remained defiant in the face of international condemnation of its latest missile test, firing a rocket across Japanese territory.

    North Korean leader Kim Jong-un says he wants to conduct more missile launches.

    Al Jazeera's Wayne Hay reports from the South Korean capital, Seoul.
