The US wants to convene Monday an urgent meeting of the UN Security Council to discuss the recent rocket launch in North Korea. It is reported by CBS TV channel, citing sources in American diplomatic circles.
It is noted that the United States wants to discuss possible options for the international community’s response to Pyongyang’s violation of relevant resolutions of the United Nations. The U.S. permanent representative to the UN, Nikki Haley told journalists that a formal request for the convening of the emergency to the office of the world organization from Washington didn’t arrive.
On July 29, the DPRK confirmed the launch of a ballistic missile “And 14”. The North Korean Agency KCNA reported that the test did not pose a threat to neighboring countries, however, is “a stern warning for the United States.”
Later, the state Department stated that it strongly condemned the second month since the beginning of the run. Secretary Rex Tillerson laid a special responsibility for the rising tensions around North Korea to Russia and China, because, according to him, Moscow and Beijing allow Pyongyang to develop its nuclear and missile programs, while Washington and are looking for a peaceful denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and will never recognize the right of the DPRK on nuclear weapons.
