UN Security Council to Discuss N. Korea Missile Firings

By Lee Chi-dong - Yonhap News Agency

SEOUL, July 6 (Yonhap) -- The U.N. Security Council will soon discuss how to deal with North Korea's firing of ballistic missiles over the weekend, which violated the council's existing resolutions against the communist nation, South Korea's top nuclear envoy said Monday.

"The U.N. Security Council will discuss the matter. The level of its response remains to be seen," Wi Sung-lac told reporters after meeting here with his Japanese counterpart, Akitaka Saiki.

He said the North's test-launch of the ballistic missiles, seven in all, on Saturday clearly violates U.N. Security Council resolutions adopted after Pyongyang's missile and nuclear tests in 2006 and its second nuclear experiment in May this year.
