    North Korea launched an intercontinental ballistic missile into the sea off the west coast of Japan on Saturday after warning of a strong response to upcoming military exercises by South Korea and United States.

    “This is a flagrant violation of multiple UN Security Council resolutions,” Adrienne Watson, a spokeswoman for the White House National Security Council, said in a statement.

    Although the United States Indo-Pacific Command has determined that that launch did not present an “immediate threat” to US personnel or territory or its alliesfrom Washington it was considered that it “unnecessarily increases tensions and risks destabilizing the security situation in the region.”

    According to the spokeswoman, it only shows that the DPRK (the official name of North Korea) “continues to prioritize its illicit weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missile programs over the welfare of their people”.

    The United States therefore urged the international community to condemn what happened and asked North Korea to cease its “destabilizing actions” and engage in “serious dialogue.”

    Watson stressed that the US national security team is in close coordination with its partners and allies and that The United States “will take all necessary measures” to guarantee its safety and that of its allies, in explicit reference to Japan and South Korea.
