SEOUL, Nov. 29 (Yonhap) -- South Korean President Moon Jae-in strongly condemned North Korea's latest missile launch Wednesday, vowing to take the strongest measures possible.

"I strongly condemn North Korea for staging such reckless provocations," Moon said in an emergency meeting of the National Security Council held hours after the communist state launched what was believed to be an intercontinental ballistic missile.

"North Korea must immediately give up its reckless pursuit that will lead to its isolation and demise, and come to the dialogue table. The government will never tolerate North Korean provocations," he added, according to the presidential office Cheong Wa Dae.
