Japan U.N. envoy requests Security Council meet over Korea: Kyodo

TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan’s envoy to the United Nations has requested that the Security Council convene following North Korea’s rocket launch, Kyodo news agency reported.

North Korea launched a long-range rocket on Wednesday for the second time this year, and may have succeeded in putting a satellite into space, the stated aim of what critics say is a disguised ballistic missile test.

A spokeswoman at the Foreign Ministry in Tokyo could not immediately confirm if Japan had requested a Security Council meeting.
