The Security Council will have a dialogue with North Korea during a meeting on Monday at the request of the United States, following the recent missile test launches this year.

“(North Korea’s) actions need a united and firm response by the international community,” stated the ministers of the United States, Japan, Canada, Germany, Britain, France, and Italy.

On Friday, Pyongyang conducted a ballistic missile test that might have reached the U.S. mainland. After that, North Korea threatened that America would face “fiercer military retaliation” if Washington increased its security presence in the region.

The G7 statement said Friday’s test was a “reckless act” and “another blatant violation” of U.N. resolutions.
