National Security Adviser John Bolton said North Korea violated UN restrictions, during a missile test earlier this month.
Reports Saturday said Bolton told reporters there was “no doubt” the launches violated UN security council resolutions, adding they clearly included weapons North Korea is banned from testing.
Pyongyang launched short range ballistic missiles on May 4 and 9, the first launches since late 2017.
Bolton also said North Korea hasn’t responded to attempts to resume diplomatic talks, noting the U.S. special representative is ready to talk at any time.
