SEOUL, Dec 1 (Reuters) - South Korea warned North Korea not
to carry out a rocket launch later this month as announced by
Pyongyang on Saturday, saying it was a test of a long-range
missile in disguise, a provocation that violated U.N. ban and a
challenge to the international community.
"That North Korea is trying yet again to launch a long-range
missile is a grave provocation that ignores the international
community's concern and warnings and a direct challenge against
it," South Korea's Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
