Pyongyang's recent successful test of an intercontinental ballistic missile - the first by the North - has created even more urgency as the USA seeks to stop North Korea before it can master the complex process of putting a nuclear warhead atop a missile capable of hitting the United States. Haley had been aiming for a vote by the 15-member Security Council within weeks, senior diplomats said.
But other analysts think that China's actions should be understood as crisis management rather than as implying that a major upheaval in North Korea is approaching. Last month, Trump tweeted that he wished "we would have a little more help with respect to North Korea from China, but that doesn't seem to be working out". "We see the unanimity of Russian Federation and China in pursuing the route to peace".
In a show of defiance, North Korea touted its nuclear capability as an "unprecedented pain in the neck" to its enemies and pledged to improve its missile and nuclear program despite mounting worldwide pressure against the move.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang insisted, however, that the Chinese government would deal with any sanctions violations in its territory according to domestic law.
"We're constantly in touch with China. things are moving but it's still too early to tell how far they'll move", she told reporters.
"Kim Jong-un will press the button if he thinks that his rule or his dynasty are threatened", Thae Yong-ho, a high-ranking North Korean defector, told BBC in January.
The U.S. gave China a proposed resolution several weeks ago, and Haley told reporters that China has been negotiating with its close ally Russian Federation on possible new sanctions.

Though Simpson insisted he didn't know anyone was armed in the crime, he was eventually convicted of several weapons charges. Here are some of the standout quotes from Simpson's parole hearing that raised more than a few eyebrows.
North Korea has made yet another threat against the USA saying it will not hesitate to launch a nuclear strike on the mainland if the Trump administration attempts to force a regime change in Pyongyang.
The CSIS, however, said in a recent report that the USA still needs to modernise its interceptors, sensors, and ground systems to better defend against more powerful missile threats in the event of a nuclear war.
"The true test will be what (the Chinese) have worked out with Russian Federation (and whether) Russian Federation comes and tries to pull out of that", said Haley.
Critics have said that language was purposefully watered down to "called upon" instead of a more restrictive phrase because Russian Federation intervened. The Pentagon's Defense Intelligence Agency in a confidential assessment concluded North Korea could have a "reliable, nuclear-capable ICBM" in 2018.
Liu said "there is going to be more than the last resolution".
The package proposed by China and supported by Russian Federation also includes denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and "a peace and security mechanism" in place for both North Korea and South Korea, Liu said.
