The United States has slammed North Korea for firing off two short-range missiles, saying Monday's launchings were in violation of UN Security Council resolutions.
State Department Spokesperson Jen Psaki said Monday that Washington wants Pyongyang to refrain from taking provocative actions, and abide by UN Security Council resolutions 16-95 and 20-94, which prohibit North Korea from firing any ballistic missiles.
The spokesperson added the U.S. is continuing to monitor the situation in the North.
