Japan Denounces North Korea’s Plans To Launch Satellite Into Orbit

Japan says North Korea’s plan to launch a satellite into orbit within the next two weeks would be a violation of U.N. Security Council resolutions over the North’s previous missile tests.

Pyongyang notified the Japanese coast guard Monday that it plans to launch the satellite sometime between May 31 and June 11. The notification comes just weeks after North Korea’s state-run media say leader Kim Jong Un has approved final preparations for the launch.

North Korea would have to send a satellite into orbit using a long-range ballistic missile, which has been banned by U.N. Security Council resolutions.
