N. KOREA BLASTS UN OVER MISSILE CONDEMNATION

0

SEOUL: North Korea hit back at the United Nations Security Council on Saturday over its recent censure of Pyongyang for launching several rounds of short-range ballistic missiles. In a statement carried on North Korean official media, the foreign ministry described the UN criticism as “absolutely intolerable” and defended the missile launches as a response to “madcap war maneuvers” by the United States. North Korea regularly fires off missiles and rockets, but the frequency of the recent tests—six in less than three weeks—is unusual. UN resolutions bar North Korea from conducting any launches using ballistic missile technology.
