Japan UN ambassador criticizes NK after launch
WASHINGTON - Japan's U.N. Ambassador Koro Bessho says the government has told the North Koreans "that we criticize their behavior in the strongest terms possible" following a new missile launch.
He told reporters Tuesday at U.N. headquarters that "we are very concerned and we have condemned them publicly."
U.N. Security Council President Sebastiano Cardi says he has been in contact with key U.N. members, but no request has been made yet for a meeting.
Cardi says he is scheduled to brief the Security Council on Wednesday.
Japan's chief Cabinet secretary says the missile might have landed inside the country's exclusive economic zone in the Sea of Japan.
Cardi says if it fell in that zone, it would be an "even greater" danger.
