UN Security Council President Alexis Lamek said the members of the body were united in "strong concern and opposition" to Wednesday's back-to-back medium range missile tests by North Korea.
"I take away from these discussions a very large convergence of views in the Security Council," Lamek, France's deputy representative, said following emergency consultations of the 15-member council.
"All members also considered that these launches were in violation of all Security Council resolutions and insisted on the crucial importance of working for their implementation," said Lamek, whose nation currently holds the rotating Council presidency.
