North Korea will speak at the UN Security Council on Thursday after the missile launch.

North Korea will address the UN Security Council on Thursday for the first time in 10 years after Wednesday’s missile launch.

Earlier, the British Permanent Mission to the UN announced that the UN Security Council will hold an emergency meeting on Thursday in connection with the latest North Korean missile launch. Britain is chairing the UNSC in July.

“Kim (leader of the South Korean People’s Power Party Kim Ki-hyun) said that he was informed that the UNSC is preparing to hear a speech from the North (DPRK) at a meeting of the UNSC … and that this “will be the first speech by a representative of North Korea at a meeting of the Security Council UN in 10 years,” the statement said.


It is noted that Kim Ki Hyun is currently on a visit to the United States.

Tokyo reported on Wednesday that at 9:59 a.m., North Korea launched what is believed to be a ballistic missile. This is the 12th such launch this year and the first since June 15th. North Korea conducted 37 such launches last year.
