UN Security Council condemns N.Korea over missile launch

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

European stocks are likely to open lower on Friday after North Korea fired another ballistic missile over the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido this morning, its second such provocative move in weeks.

South Korea's military said it conducted a missile test of its own in response to north Korea's latest missile launch.

The 15-member Security Council also emphasized the vital importance of the DPRK immediately showing honest commitment to denuclearization through concrete action and stressed the importance of working to reduce tensions in the Korean Peninsula and beyond.

"We condemn in the strongest terms, the ballistic missile launch of 15 September 2017 conducted by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) in a reckless and provocative manner, disregarding regional and global security and stability", the statement said released by the Turkish Foreign Ministry on Friday.

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

The Security Council stressed that these DPRK actions are not just a threat to the region, but to all UN Member States. It was the country's longest-ever test flight of a ballistic missile.

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