MOSCOW, February 7. /TASS/. Pyongyang did not listen to calls from the international community, and once again demonstrated the provocative negligence of the international law norms, Russia's Foreign Ministry said in a statement published following DPRK's launch of a rocket.
"Clearly, actions of the kind case a dramatic aggravation of the situation on the Korean Peninsula and generally in North-Eastern Asia, they favor those who relies on a bloc-based policy and building up of the military confrontation, damage greatly the security of the region's countries, first of all of the DPRK itself," the ministry said.
The trend, Pyongyang has chosen, "cannot fail to cause decisive protests."
"We strongly recommend to the DPRK leaders to think whether is responding to interests of the country the policy of own opposing to the international community," the document reads.
A carrier rocket, made in North Korea, earlier on Sunday took to the target Earth orbit Kwangmyongsong-4 satellite, KCNA reported, saying the apparatus was launched from the Sohae pad in the country’s western region. The DPRK "will continue in future taking satellites to the Earth orbit," the agency said. The local media reported the launch was made at 09:00 local time (03:30 Moscow time). Pyongyang reports in 9 minutes and 46 seconds after the start the space apparatus reached the orbit. The satellite makes a loop around the Earth in 94 minutes.
