UN chief condemns North Korea over missile launch

Kayla Schwartz | 16 May, 2017, 09:14

The launch earlier today of a ballistic missile by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) seriously violates multiple United Nations Security Council Resolutions.

North Korea did not give any prior notice of its latest ballistic missile launch to the International Maritime Organization despite its IMO membership, a USA broadcaster said Tuesday.

The statement came a day before the Security Council holds an urgent session to discuss the missile test.

"The members of the Security Council agreed that the Security Council would continue to closely monitor the situation and take further significant measures including sanctions, in line with the Council's previously expressed determination", the statement said.

The North successfully test-fired a new intermediate-range ballistic missile on Sunday.

Japan, South Korea, and the US requested the emergency United Nations session, after what the DPRK claimed was a "successful intermediate-range ballistic missile test launch" on Sunday. This and previous launches constitute a threat to worldwide peace and security and further aggravate tensions in the region at a time when de-escalation is instead needed. He added that the launch violates the Security Council resolution, and said that Guterres has called calls on North Korea to "ensure full compliance with its global obligations".

The UN Security Council (UNSC) has typically issued new sanctions targeting the DPRK following major provocations like nuclear tests, though Washington recently called on the global organization to increase economic pressure on the North.

According to previous Security Council resolutions, the DPRK is banned from conducting any launches that use ballistic missile technology, nuclear tests or any other provocation.
