The UN Security Council will hold an urgent meeting today (29) to discuss North Korea's latest launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile.
 
The United States, Japan, and South Korea moved quickly to request the meeting to address Pyongyang's launch of the ICBM which the Japanese defence ministry said probably fell within Japan's exclusive economic zone.
 
The council was already scheduled to discuss progress in implementing 3 recently-adopted rounds of sanctions aimed at choking off revenue to Pyongyang's military programmes.
 
Since November last year, the council has slapped export bans on coal, iron, lead, textiles and seafood, restricted joint ventures and blacklisted a number of North Korean entities in response to the country's missile and nuclear tests.
 
It has also banned the hiring of North Korean guest workers and capped oil exports, in particular from China, Pyongyang's main trading partner.
