The U.S., South Korea and Japan initiate the UN Security Council meeting to discuss the launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile by the North Korea. U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley reported that on Twitter, adding that the meeting is slated for 4.30 p.m. New York time.

As 112 International reported, recently the North Korean military performed another test launch of the ICBM.

Having analyzed the flight trajectory, the U.S. military reported that it was an ICBM, the inter-continental ballistic missile, which fell in the Sea of Japan, having covered the distance of about 1,000 kilometers. Secretary of Defense James Mattis added that the missile went higher than all previous missiles fired by the North Korea.

Japan, the U.S. and the EU heavily condemned the missile launch. The Japanese government said it was going to convene the urgent session of the UN Security Council. The U.S. Department of the State urged all countries to continue with economic sanctions against Pyongyang.

The previous ballistic missile test took place in September; the North Korean missile covered the distance of 2,700 kilometers, reaching the altitude of 550 kilometers.
