The UN Security Council will hold on Friday evening an emergency meeting regarding recent rocket launch of North Korea. About it reports Reuters.

The meeting will occur, according to diplomats, at the initiative of the United States and Japan at 15:00 Eastern standard time (22:00 Moscow).

Today, 15 September, North Korea launched another missile unidentified type from Pyongyang, which flew over Japanese territory and fell into the Pacific ocean near the island of Hokkaido.

South Korea has launched a ballistic missile Genmu-2 in response to the next launch of the DPRK.

The North Korean authorities published yesterday, September 14, a statement which has threatened nuclear attacks on the United States and Japan, noting that Japan no longer needed and demanded “to disband the useless UN security Council” because of the tightening sanctions.

On 12 September the UN security Council voted unanimously for new sanctions against North Korea after the sixth and largest nuclear test of Pyongyang. In response to the sanctions, Pyongyang not only refused the development of nuclear-missile program, but also promised to speed it up.

Russia’s permanent representative to the UN, Vasily Nebenzia said that will insist on the consideration by the UN security Council’s methods of political influence on the DPRK, proposed by Russia and China opposing sanctions.
