In response to North Korea's launch of a military reconnaissance satellite, an emergency meeting was held at the United Nations Security Council, and various countries condemned the launch using ballistic missile technology as a violation of Security Council resolutions.
In response, the representative of North Korea objected that it was an exercise of the right of self-defense, and exchanged accusations with the representative of the United States.

An emergency meeting of the Security Council was held in the early morning of the 27th and 28th Japan time at the request of Japan, the United States, and other countries, and North Korea's Ambassador to the United Nations Kim Song also attended.

At the meeting, various countries condemned the launch using ballistic missile technology on the 21st of this month as a violation of UN Security Council resolutions, and Japan's Ambassador to the United Nations Ishikane said, "The launch will lead to the development of nuclear missiles and is a serious threat to regional peace and security."

In addition, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Thomas-Greenfield pointed out that "North Korea has repeatedly called on North Korea to stop its provocations, but it completely ignored it and blatantly violated Security Council resolutions." He criticized it for disrupting the unity of the Security Council and sending the wrong message to the international community.

In response, North Korea's Ambassador Kim retorted that the holding of the meeting itself was a violation of sovereignty, and reiterated that "the launch of a reconnaissance satellite is a legitimate exercise of the right of self-defense."

Later, when U.S. Ambassador Thomas-Greenfield reiterated his "strong rejection of North Korea's dishonest claims," North Korean Ambassador Kim retorted, "As long as U.S. military pressure does not disappear, we will continue to increase our defense capabilities."

On the other hand, representatives of China and Russia defended North Korea again this time, claiming that "it is the United States that is increasing tensions in the region."
