UNSC Condemns Missile Launch as 'Highly Provocative'

UNSC Condemns Missile Launch as 'Highly Provocative'”

Asked about the prospect for direct talks, a White House spokesman said: "As the president and his national security team have repeatedly said, now is not the time to talk to North Korea".

The council "stressed the importance of working to reduce tension in the Korean Peninsula" and reiterated "the importance of maintaining peace and stability on the peninsula divided between authoritarian North Korea and democratic South Korea".

In the latest attempt to deal with an issue that has repeatedly angered world powers, the U.N. Security Council condemned the "highly provocative" missile launch by North Korea.

In a statement, the Kremlin said the two leaders "were united in the opinion that it was unacceptable to allow an escalation in tension".

Spokeswoman Hua Chunying told reporters the situation remains "complex, sensitive and severe".

Mr Moon also spoke on the phone with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe about their response.

Peskov also said that President Vladimir Putin was expected to attend the Zapad-2017 military exercises on Monday and would observe the war games from a command centre near St Petersburg.

North Korea faced new outrage Friday morning after conducting yet another missile test.

He also said the North has nearly completed the building of its nuclear weapons force and called for "all-state efforts" to reach the goal and obtain a "capacity for nuclear counterattack the U.S. can not cope with".

In its statement, the 15-nation council called on all countries to "fully, comprehensively and immediately" implement all U.N. sanctions.

North Korea's latest test missile flew over Hokkaido in northern Japan on Friday and landed in the Pacific about 2000km to the east, the Japanese government said.

It was the second missile fired over Japan in less than a month.

That launch was followed by a nuclear test on September 3 - its largest to date - which Pyongyang said was a hydrogen bomb small enough to fit onto a missile.

North Korea fires several projectiles believed to be short-range surface-to-ship cruise missiles.

North Korea's Foreign Ministry denounced the sanctions and said the North would "redouble its efforts to increase its strength to safeguard the country's sovereignty and right to existence".

North Korea has now launched 19 missiles this year alone - its latest setting a new distance record at about 2,300 miles. "United Kingdom and worldwide community will stand together in the face of these provocations", he said on Twitter. "This includes the regime of North Korea, which has one again shown its utter contempt for its neighbors, and the entire world community".

"These measures now need to be robustly enforced".

Besides the Hyunmoo II-A, South Korea has Hyunmoo II-B that can fly about 500 kilometers, carrying a 1-ton warhead and Hyunmoo II-C can travel about 800 kilometers, putting almost all of North Korea within its range.

NATO has called for "a global response" to North Korea's ballistic missile tests early on Friday.
