Ban Ki-moon Urges N. Korea to Halt Rocket PlanUpdated: 2012-12-10 (KST)
UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon urged North Korea to call off its rocket launch plan, if it hopes to earn trust from the international community as a responsible UN member state.
While casting his ballot for Korea's presidential election in New York, Ban stressed once again that Pyongyang's planned rocket launch violates two separate resolutions passed by the UN security council.
As for the December poll, he encouraged all Koreans, home and abroad, to take part in choosing the nation's next president.
