While talking to the media, UN deputy spokesman Farhan Haq went on to say: “this is again a manifest violation of Security Council resolutions.”

Haq further went on to say: “The North Korean leadership must comply fully with its international obligations and work together with the international community to resolve the outstanding issues on the Korean Peninsula.”

He added: The Secretary-General reiterated his call on Pyongyang to respond to the South Korea’s proposals to reopen communication channels, particularly military-to-military, to lower the risk of miscalculation or misunderstanding and reduce tensions.

The Pentagon said that an initial assessment showed the missile was an intercontinental ballistic missile.
