SEOUL, July 4 (Yonhap) -- South Korean President Moon Jae-in strongly condemned North Korea's latest missile launch Tuesday, saying his country will not tolerate such a provocation.

"I strongly urge North Korea to come out of its delusion that nuclear and missile development ensures its safety and make a decision to denuclearize," the South Korean president said in an emergency meeting of the National Security Council (NSC).

The NSC meeting was convened shortly after the communist North launched an apparent ballistic missile into the East Sea.

Seoul's Joint Chiefs of Staff earlier said the projectile flew some 930 kilometers.

"North Korea's nuclear weapons and missiles are a matter of our life or death that threatens the very safety and lives of our people and our allies," Moon said. "We will not tolerate any such threat under any circumstances."
