U.N. Security Council condemns North Korea's missiles tests

UNITED NATIONS, May 15 (Reuters) - The United Nations Security Council on Monday condemned North Korea’s recent ballistic missile tests, warning that the launches contributed to the development of nuclear weapons delivery systems and were greatly increasing tensions.

In a statement, the 15-member council said it was of vital importance that North Korea show “sincere commitment to denuclearization through concrete action and stressed the importance of working to reduce tensions.”

“To that end, the Security Council demanded the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea conduct no further nuclear and ballistic missile tests,” the council said, adding that it was ready to impose further sanctions on the country. (Reporting by Michelle Nichols, editing by G Crosse)
