UN Security Council condemns North Korea missile launch

The United Nations Security Council has condemned North Korea's test-firing

of a new ballistic missile and urged its members to "redouble efforts" to enforce sanctions against the reclusive state. The 15-member council met on Monday after Japan along with South Korea and the US asked for an urgent meeting. Sunday's launch of the Pukguksong-2 missile violated UN resolutions 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.
