SEOUL, Feb. 3 — "This is a challenge to the whole international community," the deputy chief of the country’s presidential office of national security stressed

South Korea calls on Pyongyang to give up the plans of launching a rocket carrying satellite, the deputy chief of the country’s presidential office of national security, Cho Tae-yong, has said.

"North Korea should abandon this plan as any launch with the use of ballistic missile technology violates the UN Security Council resolutions," Cho Tae-yong stressed warning that Pyongyang will pay a "high price" if it goes ahead with the rocket launch.

"This is a challenge to the whole international community," he added.

North Korea has informed the United Nations about the intention to launch the satellite between February 8-25, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and the International Maritime Organization (IMO) told TASS on Tuesday. (PNA/TASS)
