The extent of sanctions on North Korea will depend on the country's actions, Foreign Minister Gerry Brownlee says after the country carried out its eighth missile strike this year.

Mr Brownlee said there was continued concern for North Korea's disregard of its obligations under United Nations Security Council resolutions, which prohibit the nation launching ballistic missiles.

"We will continue to support sanctions and international efforts to address this situation," Mr Brownlee said, condemning Sunday's launch, which was its second in a week.
