UN Security Council schedules meeting on North Korea after several missile tests

China says ‘no plan’ for new UN sanctions while DPRK hints at possible return of nuclear and long-range missile tests

The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) will discuss nuclear nonproliferation and North Korea after Pyongyang conducted several missile tests this month, the council’s schedule shows

It’s the second such meeting prompted by North Korean missiles in 2022, with the U.S. and other U.N. member states meeting on Jan. 10 after Pyongyang’s first “hypersonic” test on Jan 5. Washington followed up the meeting with a call for more U.N. sanctions against North Korea.
