Washington says the DPRK uses ballistic missile technology, which violates many UN Security Council resolutions and poses a risk of destabilizing the security situation.
The United States has called a meeting of the UN Security Council to discuss North Korea’s intention to relaunch a military spy satellite. On Thursday, June 1, Reuters reports.
North Korea’s first attempt to put a military satellite into orbit, on May 31, was unsuccessful. However, Pyongyang said it would take the necessary corrective action and conduct a second launch soon.
Washington denounced such efforts and said that the DPRK uses ballistic missile technology, which violates many UN Security Council resolutions and poses a risk of destabilizing the security situation in the region and beyond.
“North Korea’s dangerous and destabilizing nuclear and missile programs threaten peace and stability in the region,” said US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin.
It was reported that the UN Security Council meeting was convened by the US along with Albania, Ecuador, France, Japan, Malta and the UK.
It was previously reported that Japan and South Korea issued an air alert after the launch of a space launch vehicle in North Korea.
