U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Monday denounced Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’s ballistic missile firing early on Sunday, calling it a “further troubling violation” of Security Council resolutions.

“The DPRK leadership must return to full compliance with its international obligations and to the path of denuclearization,” Guterres said in a statement.

The U.N. Security Council was scheduled to hold an emergency meeting on Monday afternoon on DPRK’s missile launch.
