The Wall Street Journal: U.N. Security Council condemns North Korea for ‘outrageous actions’

UNITED NATIONS — The United Nations Security Council adopted a statement Tuesday condemning North Korea “for its outrageous actions and threats against another U.N. member state” in the aftermath of the country’s latest missile launch, which passed over Japan.

The “presidential statement,” which counts as the Council’s fastest form of reaction to unfolding events, reiterated that North Korea is in violation of multiple Security Council resolutions banning ballistic missile and nuclear tests and called on it to cease all such activity.

“The Security Council expresses its grave concern that the DPRK is, by conducting such a launch over Japan as well as its recent actions and public statements, deliberately undermining regional peace and stability and have caused grave security concerns around the world,” the statement said, referring to North Korea by its acronym.
