North Korea’s warning it was adopting a new approach in its test of ballistic missiles had alarmed the United Nations, as outlined by Assistant Secretary-General for the Middle East, Asia and the Pacific Khaled Khiari speaking in New York City on Wednesday.

"The DPRK’s reference to launch in ballistic missiles and its threat of potentially taking a so-called 'new path' in the coming weeks is deeply troubling," said the UN senior official speaking to the Security Council.

"The Secretary-General is reiterating his call on the DPRK leadership to comply fully with its international obligations," added Khiari who urged North Korea to resume its negotiations with the US.
