JAPAN: ' PM Shinzo Abe Denounces North Korea's Missile Launch in Violation of UN Security Resolutions '

#AceWorldNews – JAPAN (Tokyo) – July 27 – The Japanese government lodged a protest and denounced North Korea’s Saturday missile launch which came in “violation of UN Security Council resolutions," local Mainichi newspaper reported. "We need to let them know that nuclear and missile development and economic revival won’t go together," Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said during a trip to Mexico.

Japan’s defence minister, Itsunori Onodera, ordered to gather information and stay on full alert, a ministry official told local media.

North Korea fired a short-range missile into the Sea of Japan on Saturday at 21:40 local time in a north-eastern direction without advanced warning; neither a no-fly nor no-sail zone were imposed, according to South Korea’s joint chiefs of staff.
