TOKYO, December 17 (Itar-Tass) — Japan and Russia agreed to cooperate over the missile launch by North Korea, the Japanese Foreign Ministry reported on Monday.
Shinsuke Sugiyama, head of the Japanese Foreign Ministry’s Asia-Pacific bureau, said he had had a telephone conversation with Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov to discuss this issue.
“The international community should take decisive measures due to the North Korean missile launch,” the Japanese diplomat said.
According to the Japanese ministry, both parties agreed to cooperate and support the U.N. Security Council initiatives in this aspect.
On December 12, North Korea launched a long-range rocket from the Sohae Space Centre. The launch was successful. The world community considers the launch the direct violation of the U.N. Security Council resolutions. Pyongyang insists on its right to use the space for peaceful purposes. Japan put forth proposals to toughen sanctions against North Korea.
