United tions, Feb 8: The UN Security Council on Sunday strongly condemned the launch using ballistic missile technology by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) on Saturday, said a press statement of the council. "This launch, as well as any other DPRK launch that uses ballistic missile technology, even if characterised as a satellite launch or space launch vehicle, contributes to the DPRK's development of nuclear weapon delivery systems," Xinhua quoted the statement as saying. The launch is a serious violation of Security Council resolutions 1718 (2006), 1874 (2009), 2087 (2013), and 2094 (2013), it said.
