Malaysia has condemned the test launching of an intermediate-range ballistic missile by the North Korea on Saturday, slamming it as a blatant violation of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions.

The Foreign Ministry said the launch of the missile had seriously undermined the global nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation regime.

“Malaysia urges the North Korea to desist from conducting further ballistic missile launches, and to comply fully with the relevant UNSC resolutions with a view to achieving lasting peace on the Korean Peninsula and in maintaining international peace and security,” said Wisma Putra in a statement.

It was reported that the US military detected a failed North Korean test launch of an intermediate ballistic missile near the north-western city of Kusong.
