South Korea said in a state­ment that the North Korea launch bluntly vi­o­lated UN Se­cu­rity Coun­cil res­o­lu­tions.

China urged the North Korea to com­ply with UN res­o­lu­tions and stop any ac­tion that might es­ca­late the ten­sion on the Korean Penin­sula, a Chi­nese For­eign Min­istry spokesper­son said. The spokesper­son made the re­marks when asked to com­ment on the DPRK fir­ing of what the Re­pub­lic of Korea’s mil­i­tary as­sessed as a Rodong bal­lis­tic mis­sile on Fri­day morn­ing. South Korea has also strongly de­nounced the na­tion’s launch of a bal­lis­tic mis­sile in vi­o­la­tion of UN Se­cu­rity Coun­cil res­o­lu­tions.

Seoul’s for­eign min­istry said in a state­ment that the DPRK launch bluntly vi­o­lated UN Se­cu­rity Coun­cil res­o­lu­tions, which ban all launches based on bal­lis­tic mis­sile tech­nol­ogy, strongly slam­ming Py­ongyang for the Fri­day fir­ing of a bal­lis­tic mis­sile. Xin­hua
