Reports: UNSC announces emergency meeting following North Korean SLBM test

US special envoy to North Korea urges return to dialogue during a trilateral meeting in Washington

The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) reportedly announced Tuesday that it will hold an emergency meeting following North Korea’s latest submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) test.

The UNSC and U.N. more broadly have denounced North Korean missile tests in the past, calling for Pyongyang to follow resolutions that prohibit the country from nuclear and ballistic missile activities, including tests.
