South Korea has requested that China review claims that a missile launcher displayed by North Korea last weekend was provided by China, potentially violating UN sanctions, a senior Seoul official told South Korean Yonhap News Agency Friday.

Last Sunday, North Korea displayed a new long-range ballistic missile and launcher as part of a mass military parade. Various experts have suggested that the design of the new vehicle comes from a Chinese truck factory that produces such launchers.

Weapons technology assistance of this kind could violate UNSC resolutions of 2006 and 2009 banning the transfer of any arms-related materials to North Korea.

China categorically denies any violations.
