 The United Nations Security Council will meet on Wednesday, December 11th, to discuss North Korea's latest nuclear and missile programs, reported Reuters.

A US State Department official said earlier that his country will ask the United Nations Security Council to discuss North Korea’s latest missile tests to consider “the possibility of an escalatory DPRK provocation”, reported Reuters.

US President Donald Trump has previously said that the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un risks “everything” if he resumes hostile policy and reluctance to denuclearize, moments after Pyongyang has said that it had carried out a “successful test of great significance”.
