Russia strongly urged North Korea to reconsider its plan to launch a rocket later this month, saying Moscow regretted the move.

North Korea announced on Saturday that it would carry out its second long-range rocket launch this year between December 10th and 22nd .

Pyongyang insists it is a purely "peaceful, scientific" mission aimed at placing a polar-orbiting earth observation satellite in orbit.

But Russia said the launch would violate UN Security Council resolution 1874 which "unambiguously" prohibits Pyongyang from carrying out ballistic missile launches.
