The United Nations Security Council has denounced North Korea’s test-firing of a new ballistic missile and urged its members to redouble efforts to enforce sanctions against the reclusive state.
According to the estimates of South Korean intelligence agency, the solid-fuel missile launched by North Korea on Sunday has a range of more than 2,000 km (1,240 miles). That would bring large parts of China, Taiwan, Japan and Russia within range.
However, according to UN Security Council, this is a complete violation of UN Resolution banning ballistic missile launches and marked a major escalation from Pyongyang’s shorter-range rocket launches. It was also the first direct challenge to the international community since US President Donald Trump took office on January 20.
At a news conference on Monday, President Donald Trump said: “Obviously North Korea is a big, big problem and we will deal with that very strongly.”
US, Japanese and South Korean military officials held a teleconference on Monday in which they condemned the launch as “a clear violation” of multiple Security Council resolutions.
“The members of the Security Council deplore all the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea ballistic missile activities, including these launches,” the Security Council said in a statement.
The council “called upon all member states to redouble their efforts to implement fully the measures imposed on the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea by the Security Council”.
