Japan un security council

Japan's Defense Minister Satoshi Morimoto (C) is surrounded by reporters upon his arrival at the prime minister's official residence in Tokyo to attend a meeting of the Security Council on December 12, 2012. North Korea successfully launched a long-range rocket in defiance of UN sanctions threats over what Pyongyang's critics have condemned as a disguised ballistic missile test. Japan did not try to shoot down a North Korean rocket as it passed over its southern island chain of Okinawa, the government said on December 12, strongly condemning the launch.
