US President Barack Obama said Sunday that North Korea’s rocket launch was “provocative,” amounted to a test of the long-range Taepodong-2 missile, and called for a UN Security Council meeting.

“The launch today of a Taepodong-2 missile was a clear violation of United Nations Security Council Resolution 1718, which expressly prohibits North Korea from conducting ballistic missile-related activities of any kind,” Obama said in a written statement issued from Prague.
