Brussels, Sep 15 (AFP) NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg today called for a “global response” to North Korea’s latest missile launch, calling it “a reckless breach of UN resolutions.”

“North Korea’s missile launch is another reckless breach of UN resolutions — a major threat to international peace and security which demands a global response,” he said in a tweet.

The launch earlier Friday of a ballistic missile over Japan came after the United Nations Security Council imposed an eighth set of measures on the isolated country following its sixth nuclear test earlier this month. (AFP) KJ
