SEOUL, February 3. /TASS/. South Korea calls on Pyongyang to give up the plans of launching a rocket carrying satellite, the deputy chief of the country’s presidential office of national security, Cho Tae-yong, has said.
"North Korea should abandon this plan as any launch with the use of ballistic missile technology violates the UN Security Council resolutions," Cho Tae-yong stressed warning that Pyongyang will pay a "high price" if it goes ahead with the rocket launch.
"This is a challenge to the whole international community," he added.
North Korea has informed the United Nations about the intention to launch the satellite between February 8-25, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and the International Maritime Organization (IMO) told TASS on Tuesday.
