Moscow has condemned Pyongyang's latest missile launch and urged other countries to exercise restraint.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia condemns North Korea's latest missile launches and calls on the world community to exercise restraint in its response, First Deputy Foreign Minister Vladimir Titov said Monday.

"Of course we condemn it, and are concerned about the development of events. But simultaneously we call on our partners, with whom we are working on this matter, to exercise restraint," Titov told reporters.

US Military Says DPRK’s Latest Missile Launch Not Posing Threat to North America
North Korea test-fired a missile earlier in the day. It fell almost 190 miles from Japan’s Oki Islands in the Sea of Japan.

Tensions surrounding North Korea's activities with both nuclear and non-nuclear weapons have drastically escalated in recent months, after Pyongyang conducted a number of nuclear tests and ballistic missile launches in violation of the UN Security Council's resolutions.
