N. Korea warns U.S., European nations against UN Security Council meeting on missile tests


Our top story this morning…
North Korea’s ambassador to the UN says it wouldn’t necessarily be in the best interests
of the U.S. and EU nations to raise the issue of the regime’s recent missile test at the
UN Security Council. The remarks come as the Security Council is
slated to hold a closed-door session to discuss the North’s recent firing of what appeared
to be a sea-based platform ballistic missile. Lee Seung-jae reports.
North Korea’s top envoy to the UN Kim Song warned the United States and European nations
on Monday,… saying that raising the North’s recent missile test at the UN Security Council
would push the regime to further defend its sovereignty. “We know well that the United States is behind
the impure moves of the UK, France and Germany. The United States and its followers should
bear in mind that if they raise the issue of our self-defensive measures at the U.N.
Security Council, it will further urge our desire to defend our sovereignty. So we will
sharply watch every move of the United States and U.N. Security Council. I thank you for
your attention.” Asked how the North plans to defend itself,…
Kim said to “carefully watch” what the regime will do in the future,… but stressed that
it does not mean the launch of another missile. The remarks came a day before the UN Security
Council is slated to hold a closed-door meeting to discuss the North’s test last week of a
sea-based platform ballistic missile,… as requested by Britain, France and Germany.
The three countries cited North Korea’s violation of UN Security Council resolutions that ban
the regime from using ballistic missile technology. Despite the North’s protest,… the 15-member
council is due to meet behind closed doors on Tuesday, local time.

  1. Everyone with a child’s intelligence predicted this. It’s going to escalate to ICBM launch next year as China hopes to embarrass Trump to lose the election. The only question is will they test a nuke? Will the test mountain finally collapse and spill radiation all over them? Let’s watch the show!
