TOKYO, Japan – Japan’s upper house of parliament unanimously adopted a resolution on Monday condemning North Korea’s November 29 missile launch, with all 237 members of the House of Councillors backing the resolution.

“The missile launch poses an unprecedentedly serious and inevitable threat, and also causes harm to peace and security in the region and the entire world,” the document says.

Such steps by Pyongyang show that “North Korea is set to advance its missile and nuclear program.”

“Japan won’t accept this behavior and will never fall victim to provocations,” Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said.

The resolution calls to “force North Korea to change its way of thinking, encourage the country to have talks and seek a peaceful solution to the problem by diplomatic efforts.”
