The UN Security Council on Monday unanimously condemned the launch of a medium-range missile by North Korea and threatened to impose new “significant measures” against Pyongyang.

In a communique by all 15 members, the Council declared that the North Korean missile launch was a “serious violation” of the country’s international obligations and urged the regime to stop such actions, EFE news reported.

Although the text does not specify which measures are being taken in response, the language used is similar to past occurrences which were followed by new sanctions against Pyongyang.
