North Korea again test fires missile despite of tougher UN sanctions
PYONGYANG: North Korea fired six short-range missiles into the sea despite tougher UN sanctions.

 

North Korea launched missile in the sea between North and Japan.

 

North Korea launched missiles just hours after UN Security Council approved toughest sanctions against Pyongyang.

 

South Korea’s defence spokesman claimed that the projectiles were fired from the eastern coastal town of Wonsan and it could be missiles, artillery or rocket.

 

UN passed a resolution to put a ban on North’s exports to prevent its cash flow which is mostly spent on nuclear weapons.

 

The sanctions include a ban on exports of coal which earns $ 1 billion and iron ore worth $ 200 billion annually.

 

It also includes the screening of cargo ships and sales or transfers of small arms and light weapons to North Korea.

 

US President Barack Obama said “The international community, speaking with one voice, has sent Pyongyang a simple message: North Korea must abandon these dangerous programmes and choose a better path for its people.”

 

Pyongyang’s fire tests express a deeper anger on UN sanctions.

 

North Korea’s state media warned that enactment of the law would result in “miserable ruin” ahead of its passing, along with trade restrictions approved by UN.
