Japan's Foreign Minister and the US ambassador to Japan on Saturday called North Korea's possible missile test a provocative action, and Tokyo urged Pyongyang through diplomatic channels not to launch, news reports said. Japan's Foreign Minister Taro Aso and US Ambassador to Japan Thomas Schieffer met on Saturday evening amid mounting speculation that the North may soon test a long-range missile capable of reaching the United States with a light payload. Japanese and South Korean media reports said the North had loaded booster rockets onto a launch pad in preparation for the test, expected as early as Sunday.
