breaking world news united nations un

(Worthy News) - The UN Security Council will hold an urgent meeting on Wednesday (Nov 29) to discuss North Korea's latest launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile, the US mission to the United Nations said.

The United States, Japan and South Korea moved quickly to request the meeting to address Pyongyang's launch of the ICBM which the Japanese defence ministry said probably fell within Japan's exclusive economic zone.

The council was already scheduled to discuss progress in implementing three recently-adopted rounds of sanctions aimed at choking off revenue to Pyongyang's military programmes. [ Source: Channel News Asia (Read More...) ]
