South Korean defense ministry said that North Korea has launched a long-range missile. North Korea previously notified the International Maritime Organization (IMO) the intentions to launch a satellite of terrestrial observation between February 2 and 25. State media reports the satellite launch was successful and it was ordered by North Korean leader Kim Jong-un with more plans to launch satellites.

A warship detected the launch at 09:31 local time (0031 UTC), according to South Korean Defense Ministry spokesman Moon Sang Gyun. The test is viewed by nations like Japan and South Korea the launch is a disguise of a ballistic missile test. Japan, South Korea, United States condemned the launch and requested an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council to be held in New York on Sunday at 11:00 local time (1600 UTC).

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe called the launch “unacceptable” and said, “We will take action to totally protect the safety and well-being of our people.” South Korean President Park Geun-hye also called the launch “unacceptable” and is a “challenge to world peace”. Japanese public broadcaster NHK said no-anti ballistic missiles were fired when the rocket passed in Japanese airspace over the Okinawa island.

Airlines from Japan and South Korea changed their flight routes to avoid the possible fall of rocket parts, believed to drop in waters between South Korea and China and a second part near Philippines.

North Korea tested in January a hydrogen bomb claiming the test was successful.
