(VOVworld) -  Japan has voiced its opposition to the latest missile launch of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea on Saturday, saying this move of Pyongyang has seriously violated UN Security Council’s resolution. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who is on a visit to Mexico, said that Tokyo will protest through diplomatic channels in Beijing while cooperating with the US  and the Republic of Korea in collecting and analyzing intelligence data to ensure aviation and navigation safety in the region.  The Republic of Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff in a statement said the North "fired a short-range missile presumed to be a Scud-type one into the Sea of Japan at 09:40 pm local time. The missile, with an estimated range of 500 kilometers, was launched in a northeastern direction from Jangsan Cape in North Korea's western coastal region near the de facto sea border between the two states. But Pyongyang had not imposed a no-fly, no-sail zone ahead of the launch, according to the statement.
