UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon strongly condemned North Korea's missile launch and expressed concern that it could negatively impact prospects for peace and security in the region.
His spokesman said: "The Secretary-General deplores the rocket launch announced by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea).
"It is a clear violation of Security Council resolution 1874, in which the Council demanded that the DPRK not conduct any launch using ballistic missile technology."
