Islamabad [Pakistan], Feb 14 (ANI): Pakistan has slammed North Korea's latest missile test, saying that it is a violation of the UN Security Council Resolutions. Islamabad urged North Korea to refrain from any step that undermines the prospects of regional peace and stability. "Pakistan has consistently supported a nuclear weapons free Korean Peninsula, as agreed by all parties. It calls upon the DPRK to refrain from actions which run counter to the objective of reaching a peaceful and diplomatic solution to the issue within the framework of the Six Party Talks, said a statement from Foreign Affairs Ministry. North Korea fired a ballistic missile earlier on Sunday in what was termed as a 'show of force' against U.S. President Donald Trump, as reported by the Guardian. According to South Korean military sources, the missile was launched from an area in the country's western region around Banghyon, North Pyongan province, the same area where the midrange Musudan weapon was tested by the country on October 15 and 20, 2016.
