Japan has warned North Korea to stop provoking World War 3, following a series of missile launches and threats from Kim Jong-un of nuclear war in response to US-South Korean military drills. 

Japanese senior official Kiyoshi Odawara complained to a UN Security Council that the repeated North Korean missile launches constitute “blatant violations” of UN resolutions.

Firstpost.com reports:

“Japan strongly urges North Korea to refrain from further provocations and to comply faithfully and fully with the relevant Security Council resolutions,” said Odawara, Japan’s parliamentary vice-minister for foreign affairs.

North Korea yesterday threatened a pre-emptive military strike as South Korea and the United States kicked off large-scale annual military exercises.

Japan this month joined the United States in calling an emergency session of the council after North Korea fired an intermediate-range missile that landed off Japan’s northern coast and within its Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).

But the council failed to condemn that 2 August launch after China sought to include language in a statement opposing the THAAD missile defense system that the United States plans to deploy in South Korea.

Odawara said North Korea’s missile launches “cannot be condoned for any reason.”

The Japanese official called on all UN member-states to “redouble their efforts” to fully implement all resolutions including a measure adopted in March that imposed the toughest sanctions yet on North Korea.

“These efforts are crucial and their significance and impact cannot be under-estimated,” said Odawara.

North Korea has been hit by five sets of UN sanctions since it first tested a nuclear device in 2006.
