Members of the UN Security Council will gather for an urgent meeting – after the North Korean regime launched another ballistic missile on Friday morning. By doing so, Pyongyang once again violated previous UN resolutions breached the international norms of law, threatened the regional and global security and evoked another wave of public outrage and condemnation. A source in Ukraine’s permanent office in the UN reported that as quoted by Ukrinform news agency.

‘The UN Security Council will hold consultations behind the closed doors, on the demand of the U.S. and Japan. The session is slated for 3 p.m. New York time,’ the source said.
