NEW YORK, April 20 (Yonhap) -- The U.N. Security Council on Thursday unanimously adopted a statement condemning North Korea's latest missile launch.

The 15-member council said in the statement that the April 15 missile launch, even if it ended in failure, is a clear violation of U.N. Security Council resolutions.

It was the fifth time the council has adopted a press statement on North Korea.

Since the North's first nuclear test in 2006, the council has adopted six resolutions, all banning the communist nation from any ballistic missile activity over concern the technology could be used in making nuclear missiles.
