South Korea military says missile launched by North Korea flew over Japan

The US-drafted resolution passed unanimously on Monday, just one month after the Security Council made a decision to ban exports of coal, lead and seafood in response to Pyongyang's launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) that appeared to bring much of the US mainland into range.

The marketplace is so far showing a very muted reaction to the news North Korea has fired another ballistic missile over Japan.

An emergency meeting has been scheduled by the U.N. Security Council on North Korea's latest missile launch.

"I had no idea what it was and this loud speaker was playing all throughout the city", resident Matthew Galat said. South Korean military says North has conducted sixth nuclear testNHK added that there was no attempt to shoot down the missile that exited Japan's airspace after two minutes and landed in the ocean at 7:16 a.m.

President Donald Trump said he was briefed on the situation.

"If North Korea then steps back its testing, then you have the space to say 'ok, what are the conditions that we're going to talk about?'"

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe called on the global community to respond with a "clear message" that North Korea should immediately stop its provocative actions. If approved, it would mark the resumption of Seoul's aid to North Korea via United Nations organizations, last carried out in December 2015. "North Korea doesn't seem to be deterred or restraining its provocations in any way".

"The weight of the world in terms of military weight will be brought down on North Korea and China will not save them".

"The range of this test was significant since North Korea demonstrated that it could reach Guam with this missile", the Union of Concerned Scientists said in a statement.
