The agenda of the United Nations Security Council foresees that a meeting will be held next Monday to discuss the North Korean dossier, after Pyongyang conducted a new test of an ICBM.
A senior US administration official said in earlier than the last test North Korea’s missile attack involved a “long-range missile that can strike many countries,” adding that the United Nations Security Council is expected to meet to discuss the issue.

In the latest sentence, the secretary general of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, strongly criticized the launch of a ballistic missile by North Korea, reiterating his call on Pyongyang to “immediately cease any further provocative steps”, according to his deputy spokesperson, Farhan Haq.
Haq added that Guterres also called on North Korea to comply with Security Council resolutions banning the launch of ballistic missiles and to “immediately take steps to resume dialogue leading to a pace sustainable and the complete and verifiable denuclearization of the Korean peninsula”.
