BRUSSELS (AP) — Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Tuesday expressed deep concern about North Korean plans to carry out a long-range rocket launch this month.
The tests are banned by the U.N. Security Council, and Washington sees the launches as veiled tests of missiles designed to strike the United States.
North Korea has told nations that it will launch the rocket sometime this month and that debris would fall into the Yellow Sea and waters east of the Philippines.
The defiant declaration already jas forced South Korean officials to reroute flights.
The North says the rocket will be mounted with a polar-orbiting Earth observation satellite.
