BRUSSELS - The European Union's top diplomat condemned on Tuesday North Korea's missile launch over Japan, offering the bloc's support for any future talks but also warning of possible steps following meetings at the United Nations Security Council.

"We fully support calls for an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council today," the EU's foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said in a statement, saying the European Union will look at an "appropriate response in close consultation with key partners and in line with UN Security Council deliberations."

The European Union last toughened its economic sanctions on North Korea on Aug. 10.
