UNSC Condemns N. Korea Ballistic Missile Test

The UN Security Council has condemned North Korea for its latest ballistic missile test conducted on Sunday, a UN press statement said.
According to the statement, Pyongyang carried out tests in "grave violation" of the country’s international obligations under six United Nations Security Council resolutions, Sputnik reported.
"The members of the Security Council strongly condemn the most recent ballistic missile launches conducted by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea [North Korea] on February 11 and October 19, 2016," the statement said on Monday.
The statement also reads that UN member states should increase their efforts to ensure that measures introduced against Pyongyang are fully implemented.
Japanese Ambassador to the United Nations Koro Bessho said in a press conference after the meeting that the Security Council was unanimous in condemning North Korea for its latest ballistic missile launch on Sunday, and will push for implementation of existing resolutions to address the issue.
On Sunday, Pyongyang confirmed that it had carried out a successful test of an intermediate-range nuclear-capable ballistic missile. Launched from an airbase in the western province of North Pyongan, the missile was reported to have traveled about 480 km before plunging into the Sea of Japan.
North Korea's neighbors warned Pyongyang that they saw the latest missile launch as a provocation, and a violation of a UN Security Council resolution prohibiting it from carrying out ballistic missile tests.
US President Donald Trump said in a joint press conference with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Monday that North Korea is a problem that will be dealt with "strongly".
