U.S. Asks UN to Meet Over North Korea

Seeks closed-door Security Council meeting on Thursday. 

On Monday, North Korea confirmed it had launched a ballistic missile that it said could target the U.S. territory of Guam as well as American military installations in Japan. 

The United States, with the support of Britain and France, has asked the United Nations Security Council to meet behind closed doors on Thursday over these missile launches. 

The UN Secretary General has condemned the launch and urged Pyongyang to “desist from taking any further counter-productive actions.” 

“This is a breaking of the DPRK’s announced moratorium in 2018 on launches of this nature, and a clear violation of Security Council resolution,” said a deputy UN spokesman. “It is of great concern that the DPRK has again disregarded any consideration for international flight or maritime safety.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president and his administration as they seek to address North Korean missile testing threats.
  • For members of the UN Security Council as they consider the request to meet regarding the breaking of agreements by North Korea.
