United Nations chief condemns N Korean's missile launch

17 September 2017

The Ethiopian delegation, which is the presidency of the Security Council for September, confirmed in a notice that the USA and Japanese delegations to the United Nations "request the Presidency to call urgent consultations".

"We again call on the DPRK (Democratic People's Republic of Korea) to cease its provocative and highly unsafe actions that threaten the peace, stability, and security of the region", said Philippine Foreign Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano in a statement on Saturday, September 16.

The emergency Security Council consultations were requested by the United States and Japan following North Korea's launch of a ballistic missile on Friday local time, which flew over Japan's Hokkaido.

The launch occurred near Sunan Air Base in Pyongyang and the IRBM headed east, he added, overflying the territory of northern Japan before landing in the Pacific Ocean east of Japan.

Russian Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia also warned that there is no alternative to a peaceful solution.

The missile posed no threat to North America or Guam, Manning told reporters during a briefing this morning.

However, the crisis on the Korean Peninsula has spilled over and endangered regional security and stability, as well as relations between other countries.
