UNITED NATIONS: Coming down hard against North Korea, the United Nations Security Council had on Sunday condemned the Pyongyang’s rocket launch and vowed to take ‘significant measures’ against North Korea for violating the UN resolutions.
Venezuelan ambassador Rafael Dario Ramirez Carreno said, “This is a serious offense. The United Nations security council had unanimously condemned this move from North Korea. We are going to come hard against such violations. We will ensure that the UN Security council imposes serious consequences. DPRK’s (North Korea) latest transgressions require our response to be even firmer.”
On the other hand, China and the US have been discussing on a UN sanctions resolution to impose on North Korea, for violating the global norms on a regular note. Earlier, the same country has shocked the world on January 6, by claiming that it has carried out a Hydrogen bomb test successfully.
The US has asked China to continue its policy of ‘no business’ with North Korea following the latest rocket launch missile program.
According to the US media, the United States Air force has detected a long-range missile entering the space and has subsequently informed South Korea on the latest developments. South Korea, which had a closer look said that the launch which the North Korean officials have framed as a ‘satellite launch’, was actually a technical test for a long-range missile.
Giving out a strong message to North Korea, the United States said that it would deploy an advanced missile system Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) in South Korea and that it would focus only on North Korea. Observing the deteriorating situation, the United Nations Security Council has called for an emergency meeting on Wednesday to discuss the impact of the rocket launch and its consequences.
