THREATS FROM NORTH KOREA: UNSC to meet on N. Korea's missile launches

Sourced from NHK WORLD:

The United Nations Security Council will convene an emergency meeting on Tuesday following the latest missile launches by North Korea.

The North fired 3 ballistic missiles on Monday. They are estimated to have flown about 1,000 kilometers before falling in Japan's exclusive economic zone in the Sea of Japan.

It's the second time North Korean missiles have fallen into Japan's EEZ. The first occurred on August 3rd.

The Security Council members are expected to meet at 11:30 AM on Tuesday, local time, at the request of Japan, the United States and South Korea.

It comes after the council unanimously adopted a press statement on August 27th, condemning Pyongyang over a series of missile launches.

The statement called on council members to redouble their efforts to fully implement resolutions against the North.
