Philippines urges North Korea to stop 'provocations,' start talks

Guterres will be discussing the situation on the Korean Peninsula, with all concerned parties in the margins of the upcoming high level week of the UN General Assembly.

Turkey condemned the latest the ballistic missile launch, saying that it would lead to further deteriorate the worldwide security.

It also demanded that the DPRK comply with the relevant Security Council resolutions as well as the statements of its President by suspending all activities related to its ballistic missile programme and, in that context, re-establish its pre-existing commitments to a moratorium on missile launches.

The THAAD deployment was completed last week with four additional launching pads that arrived recently in South Korea.

Capable of traveling 300 kilometers and carrying up to a 1.5-ton warhead, the Hyunmoo II-A missile has been billed as a key asset for the South Korean military to destroy North Korea's underground nuclear sites, missile facilities and wartime commands.

NATO has called for "a global response" to North Korea's ballistic missile tests early on Friday.

Russian Federation strongly condemned the latest missile launch by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), as such provocation will further worsen the situation around the Korean Peninsula, the Kremlin said Friday.

North Korea fired a missile over Japan's northern island Hokkaido and into the Pacific Ocean on Friday.

According to Cayetano, North Korea's missile launches "not only undermine efforts towards a peaceful resolution of issues in the Korean Peninsula but also exacerbate an already tense situation there". The tests, which could potentially make launches over Japan an accepted norm, are also seen as North Korea's attempt to win greater military freedom in the region and raise doubts in Seoul and Tokyo that Washington would risk the annihilation of a US city to protect them. "North Korea's missile launch is another reckless breach of United Nations resolutions, a major threat to worldwide peace and security which demands a global response", NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said on social media.

"We again call on the DPRK (Democratic People's Republic of Korea) to cease its provocative and highly risky actions that threaten the peace, stability, and security of the region", said Philippine Foreign Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano in a statement on Saturday, September 16.

Kim said the country's final goal "is to establish the equilibrium of real force with the US and make the USA rulers dare not talk about military option for the DPRK", referring to North Korea's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
