GENEVA - North Korea's latest ballistic missile test that flew over Japan on Tuesday is "another provocation" and a big concern, the US disarmament ambassador said.

Washington still needs to do "further analysis" of the missile that flew over Japan's northern Hokkaido island into the sea, but it will be the subject of a United Nations Security Council meeting later in the day, US envoy Robert Wood told reporters in Geneva.

"It's another provocation by North Korea, they just seem to continue to happen. This is a big concern of course to my government and to a number of other governments," Wood said before a session of the UN-sponsored Conference on Disarmament where North Korean Ambassador Han Tae Song was to speak.
