US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said the United States was working with China on a new sanctions resolution and warned that all countries must step up action against North Korea or face measures themselves.
North Korea's missile test this week marked a grave turning point that should rally a global response to the threat of a rogue nuclear state.
Mainstream historians say up to 200,000 women, mostly from Korea but also China and other parts of Asia, were forced to work in Japanese military brothels during World War II.
North Korea has been under unrelenting pressure to rein in its nuclear programme, with the USA threatening to step up military force, the United Nations raising the possibility of tougher sanctions and even the country's sole ally China expressing growing frustration.

Left-leaning Moon and President Xi Jinping spoke on the phone last week and both agreed that denuclearising North Korea was a "common goal" between them, Moon's spokesman said.
"What we do know is the worldwide community is concern". The launch of the missile has given the nation's leader Kim Jong Un a superior power over the rest that stand against the country including the United States of America and North Korea as well.
Haley noted that this weekend's missile came within 60 miles of Russia's border and said Russian Federation is "all wrong". No doubt the U.S. would like to talk about verification of the dismantling of the North's nuclear and missile program.
