South Korea warned communist North Korea on Wednesday that it will face international sanctions if it tests a long-range missile. Foreign Minister Yu Myung-hwan said a missile test by the North will "inevitably" entail sanctions because it would be a violation of a 2006 UN Security Council resolution banning Pyongyang from seeking missile or nuclear programs. He did not elaborate on what kinds of sanctions are possible. Yu's warning comes as North Korea is believed to be gearing up to test-fire its longest-range missile, the Taepodong-2. Amid growing international pressure to drop the plan, Pyongyang said earlier this week that it has the right to "space development" - a term it has used in the past to disguise a missile test as a satellite launch.
