U.N. Security Council to meet Wednesday on North Korea

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - The United Nations Security Council will meet publicly on Wednesday over North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs, diplomats said on Monday.

The meeting has been requested by the United States. A U.S. State Department official earlier said Washington wanted the 15-member council to discuss North Korea’s missile launches and the possibility of an “escalatory” provocation by Pyongyang.
