New York — The UN Security Council is strongly condemning North Korea's latest ballistic missile launches and threatening "further significant measures" if it refuses to stop its nuclear and missile tests.
The UN's most powerful body agreed to the tough statement hours after a closed-door emergency meeting on Tuesday to discuss the three launches which landed near Japan.
The council expressed serious concern that North Korea carried out the launches "in flagrant disregard" of its demands.
It called for stepped-up implementation of sanctions against North Korea.
