NHK reported at noon that the UN Security Council released a press statement on Tuesday strongly condemning North Korea’s ballistic missile launch on Monday. The UNSC expressed strong concern in the statement and said that the missile launch destabilizes the region. It also urged North Korea to relinquish its nuclear and missile programs by saying that the UNSC “stresses the importance of North Korea taking a sincere attitude toward denuclearization and working to relax tension on the Korean Peninsula.” The network said a statement is usually released after the UNSC holds an emergency meeting, quoting a diplomatic source at the UN as saying: “It was important for the UNSC to send out a unified message on the serious situation in which missiles landed inside Japan’s EEZ.”
