Return to path of denuclearization: United Nations to North Korea

Return to path of denuclearization: United Nations to North Korea Return to path of denuclearization: United Nations to North Korea

"The test-fire aimed at verifying the tactical and technological specifications of the newly developed ballistic rocket capable of carrying a large-size heavy nuclear warhead", reported North Korea's official news agency KCNA. While Pyongyang regularly tests shorter-range missiles, it is also working to master the technology needed to field nuclear-tipped missiles that can reach the USA mainland.

North Korea, which regularly threatens to destroy the United States in a sea of flames, has accused Washington of pushing the Korean peninsula to the brink of nuclear war with recent military drills with South Korea and Japan.

Leader Kim Jong Un was said to have witnessed the test and "hugged officials in the field of rocket research, saying that they worked hard to achieve a great thing", according to KCNA.

Seoul- Washington and Tokyo have requested the Security Council to hold an emergency meeting, which could be held today in NY, according to what Uruguay delegation has announced.

In recent years, North Korea successfully put satellites into orbit twice aboard long-range rockets in what the United Nations called a disguised test of long-range missile technology.

In his first comments since a North Korean missile plunged into the sea off the Russian coast on Sunday, President Vladimir Putin condemned Pyongyang's nuclear program as "harmful and risky", but he added that the global community should respond with talks, not threats.

North Korea has in the past year stepped up its ballistic missile tests, firing dozens of various types of rockets, according to South Korea.

"The president expressed deep regret over the fact that this reckless provocation ... occurred just days after a new government was launched in South Korea", senior presidential secretary Yoon Young-chan said.

The crazed leader fired the mid-to-long range missile from a site near Pyongyang before it flew 700km (435 miles) into the Sea of Japan near Russian Federation yesterday (May 14).

None of the Pistons' miscues were worse than in 2003, when they made Darko Milicic the second overall pick in a talent-rich draft. Especially if they end up losing their top-three pick, it'll be all the more valuable to this ongoing rebuild.

On Sunday, Moon said that his administration would deal resolutely with North Korea's provocations in a bid to ensure that Pyongyang would not "miscalculate" the situation. The comments by ambassador to Beijing Ji Jae-Ryong were the first official response by the North to Moon's triumph last week, except for a four-paragraph dispatch by the official Korean Central News Agency two days after the vote.

South Korea's military said more information is needed to verify the technical aspects of the missile, but it added that Pyongyang seems to have yet to master missile technology for "atmospheric reentry", a key element in developing an ICBM.

The nature of the projectile is not immediately clear, a South Korean military official said by telephone.

People watch a television news programme, showing file footage of a North Korean missile launch, at a railway station in Seoul on 14 May.

Speaking about the prospects of peaceful talks with Pyongyang, Putin said this is possible, "moreover that there has been a positive experience of this dialogue with North Korea".

"Having a missile test is not the way to sit down with the president, because he's absolutely not going to do it", Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the United Nations, told "This Week".

Following the launch, a statement from the White House called North Korea a "flagrant menace" and urged "far stronger sanctions" against the reclusive nation.

Some experts say the missile's claimed ability to carry heavy warheads would allow North Korea to deploy larger bombs or multiple warheads potentially capable of striking different targets.

The Russian defense ministry said the missile landed several hundred kilometers away from the city of Vladivostok in Russia's Far East, but Putin said it "didn't present a threat" to his country.
