SEOUL - South Korea said on Friday the launch of a satellite by North Korea in April would be a violation of a UN Security Council resolution adopted after Pyongyang's 2009 missile test and a threat to regional security.

"If North Korea does launch a 'working satellite' as it announced, it would be a a clear violation of UN Security Council Resolution 1874 that bans all launches using ballistic missile technology," the South's foreign ministry said.

"It would be a grave provocation threatening the peace and security of the Korean peninsula and Northeast Asia," the ministry said in a statement.
