Pyongyang, Oct 8: North Korea has on Monday warned Germany, France, Britain and the United States against raising Pyongyang’s ballistic missile tests at the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), saying it would further “urge our desire to defend our sovereignty”.

The 15-member UN council is due to hold a closed-door conference on Tuesday post North Korea said it had conducted a new submarine-launched ballistic missile test last week. The talks were requested by Germany with the backing of the United Kingdom (UK) and France, according to Al-Jazeera.

“We know well that the United States is behind impure moves of the UK, France and Germany,” North Korea’s UN Ambassador Kim Song told a gathering of reporters at Pyongyang’s UN mission.

“The United States and its followers should bear in mind that if they raise the issue of our self-defensive measures at the UN Security Council meeting in this moment, it will further urge our desire to defend our sovereignty,” Kim said.

North Korea has on Thursday said it had successfully conducted a new submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM), what they called a necessary step in order to contain international forces’ threat to the nation and deepen its self-defence mechanism.

The launch, called to be most provocating since it resumed negotiations with the US, came ahead of the resumption of working-level dialogues between the United States and North Korea. The test was believed to be a reminder by Pyongyang of its nuclear weapon capability it had been aggressively developing.
