Countries concerned about North's test of the submarine-launched missile in violation of Security Council resolutions.
Axar.az reports citing Aljazeera that North Korea warned the United States, Britain, France, and Germany on Monday against raising the issue of Pyongyang's missile tests at the United Nations Security Council saying it would "further urge our desire to defend our sovereignty."
The 15-member council is due to meet behind closed doors on Tuesday after North Korea said last week it had test-fired a new submarine-launched ballistic missile. The discussion was requested by Germany with the support of Britain and France.
"We know well that the United States is behind impure moves of the UK, France, and Germany," North Korea's UN Ambassador Kim Song told a small group of reporters at Pyongyang's UN mission.
"The United States and its followers should bear in mind that if they raise the issue of our self-defensive measures at the UN Security Council meeting in this moment, it will further urge our desire to defend our sovereignty," Kim said.
