PH to North Korea: Stop 'provocative' missile tests, start peace talks

17 September 2017

The DPRK fired a missile over Japan's northern island Hokkaido and into the Pacific Ocean on Friday, which came only days after the Security Council voted in favor of a resolution toughening sanctions on the DPRK over its nuclear test early this month.

THE Philippines on Saturday again appealed to North Korea to stop its acts of provocation and return to the negotiating table.

Cayetano said the Philippine government is "concerned" over the safety of some 242,000 Filipinos in Japan who may be affected by North Korea's missile launches.

In a press statement released on Friday, the 15 council members urged all United Nations member states to "fully, comprehensively and immediately" implement all relevant Security Council resolutions concerning North Korea, particularly the newly adopted Resolution 2375, which targeted North Korea's oil supply and textile exports, Xinhua news agency reported.

When North Korea launched a missile that flew over Japan on Friday morning, prompting authorities to broadcast an alert on cellphones and television, many people wondered: Why didn't the Japanese military shoot it down?

The tougher sanctions included restrictions against its trade in oil and petroleum products.

It also "raises the alarm about the intention of the U.S.to unleash an actual nuclear war in the Korean peninsula", said the spokesman.

The Asean foreign ministers are scheduled to meet next week in NY and are expected to have a dialogue with UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres at the sidelines of the UN general assembly.

United Nations chief condemns N Korean's missile launch
South Korea's military said it conducted a missile test of its own in response to north Korea's latest missile launch. The tougher sanctions included restrictions against its trade in oil and petroleum products.

Pacom's initial assessment is that the projectile was an intermediate range ballistic missile or IRBM, he added, which is a ballistic missile with a range of 1,864 miles to 3,418 miles. "We call upon the DPRK to fulfil its obligations as expressed in UNSC resolutions", it said.

The missile was sacked from Sunam near Pyongyang and flew 3,700 km with an altitude of 770 km and hit the targeted spot in the northern Pacific, according to earlier media reports.

Kono said Friday that he had agreed with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to begin preparations for three-way talks to be held with South Korea on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.
