Nato Calls on N. Korea to Cancel Rocket LaunchUpdated: 2012-12-06 00:00:00 (KST)
NATO has called on North Korea to cancel its plan to launch a rocket later this month, expressing concerns that it could further destabilize the Korean peninsula.
In a statement issued Wednesday, the military alliance expressed "grave concern at North Korea's declared intent to launch a rocket using ballistic missile technology," adding that such an act would be in direct violation of U.N. Security Council resolutions.
Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who attended a NATO conference in Brussels on Wednesday, asked NATO foreign ministers and Russia to strongly demand that North Korea call off the launch, which is scheduled to occur between December 12th and the 22nd.
