UN Council “strongly condemns” N.Korea rocket launch
The U.N. Security Council strongly condemned on Monday North Korea’s recent failed rocket launch as a violation of council resolutions and warned it would take further action in the event of a new missile launch or nuclear test.
North Korea admitted its long-range rocket failed to deliver a satellite into orbit on Friday while U.S. and South Korean officials said it crashed into the sea a few minutes after launch.
