The United States convened the UN Security Council: what happened

Jun 2, 2023

The United States has convened a meeting of the UN Security Council to discuss North Korea's intention to re-launch a military reconnaissance satellite. This was reported by Reuters.


As noted, the DPRK's first attempt to launch a military reconnaissance satellite into orbit, which took place on May 31, was unsuccessful. Pyongyang has promised to take the necessary measures to eliminate the problems and conduct a second launch in the near future.

Washington has condemned such attempts and said that the DPRK is using ballistic missile technology, which violates numerous UN Security Council resolutions and risks destabilizing the security situation in the region and beyond.

"North Korea's dangerous and destabilizing nuclear and missile programs threaten peace and stability in the region," said US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin.

According to the newspaper, the United States convened a meeting of the UN Security Council together with Albania, Ecuador, France, Japan, Malta, and the United Kingdom.
