Message from Prime Minister Shinzo Abe:
This morning, North Korea launched a missile which passed over Japanese territory. I just now convened a meeting of the National Security Council. Although the Japanese government had full awareness of the movement of the missile since immediately after its launch and we have made thoroughgoing preparations to ensure the safety of the Japanese people, the outrage of launching a missile to fly over Japan is a serious and grave threat that is unprecedented.
We call on the United Nations Security Council to convene an emergency meeting. Japan will strongly urge an intensification of pressure still further towards North Korea, in cooperation with the international community.
Under the strong Japan-U.S. alliance, we will continue to maintain vigilance as we take all necessary measures to ensure the safety of the Japanese people so that we are able to respond under any circumstances.
