UN Security Council condemns N.Korea over missile launch

UN Security Council condemns N.Korea over missile launch

The comments were reported Saturday, hours after the U.N. Security Council convened in an emergency session and strongly condemned the launch that occurred the day before.

To add to that, the South Korean military said the latest launch - the first since sanctions were tightened this week - took place from the Sunan airfield, north of Pyongyang just before 07:00 local time (22:00 GMT on Thursday).

It appeared to follow similar direction to the North Korean missile that passed over northern Japan in late August.

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

North Korea fired the intermediate ballistic missile over Japan that landed in the Pacific, responding to new United Nations sanctions with its furthest-ever missile flight.

The president and the entire USA delegation to the annual gathering of world leaders in NY was not going for a photo op, she said.

Mr Kim said the country's final goal is to "is to establish the equilibrium of real force with the United States and make the USA rulers dare not talk about military option for the DPRK", referring to North Korea's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

The UNSC referred to the latest launch as a "manifest violation" of Security Council resolutions that comes less than two weeks after the DPRK conducted a test of a nuclear device on 3 September and only three days after the Security Council unanimously adopted fresh sanctions against the country.

The unidentified missile, fired from near Pyongyang, reached an altitude of about 770 km (480 miles) and flew 3,700 km (2,300 miles), according to South Korea's military - far enough to reach the US Pacific territory of Guam.

North Korea's state-run news agency posted several photos of a smiling Kim watching as the missile "zoomed to the sky with dazzling flash and big explosion". Had they launched it toward the south, the missile would have been able to hit USA military bases in Guam, about 2,100 miles away.

UPFRONT - North Korea: Are we on the brink of war?

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".

This week the United Nations approved a fresh wave of sanctions on North Korea as it desperately attempts to reach a diplomatic solution.
