UAE condemns North Korea's ballistic missile launch


The UAE has condemned North Korea for firing a ballistic missile over Japanese territory on October 4.

It's the first time in five years that a launch of this nature has flown over Japan.

Lana Nusseibeh, Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the UN, said the "dangerous escalation flagrantly threatened civilian lives, international aviation, and maritime safety". 

She added that the launch is a "clear violation of several Security Council resolutions" and went on to offer full support to Japan and its people.
