The United Nations Security Council called North Korea to halt its nuclear and ballistic missile tests, Press TV reported.
The request came, on Monday, as a reaction to Pyongyang’s latest missile test carried out on Saturday.
The test was strongly condemned by the UNSC.
“To that end, the Security Council demanded the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea conduct no further nuclear and ballistic missile tests,” the council said.
It added that the council was prepared to issue further anti-North Korea sanctions.
North Korea launched an intermediate-range ballistic missile from the northwestern city of Kusong at around 5:30 a.m. (2030 GMT Saturday) and it flew 787 kilometers (489 miles) before landing in the sea between North Korea and Japan, the South Korean military said in a statement.
