UNSC fails to issue press statement condemning North Korea

NHK reported at noon that although the UNSC convened a closed-door urgent meeting on Wednesday in response to North Korea’s missile launch, the members failed to reach an agreement on whether to issue a press statement condemning North Korea due to reluctance on the part of China and other nations. The network said that although the U.S. is planning to show the draft statement to each member state, it remains to be seen whether the Security Council members will be able to jointly demonstrate a firm stance against the DPRK since China’s cautious stance stems from its opposition to the deployment of the U.S. military’s THAAD missile defense system in South Korea.
