The United States and Japan on Sunday called for an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council on North Korea after Pyongyang carried out its latest missile test, diplomats said.
The meeting has been scheduled in principle for Tuesday afternoon, according to the UN mission of Uruguay, which currently holds the council’s presidency.
North Korea launched a ballistic missile early on Sunday in what was seen as a challenge to South Korea’s new President Moon Jae-In, a liberal who has said he wants to ease tensions with the North.
