UN chief urges N. Korea to reconsider satellite launch

UNITED NATIONS - UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urged North Korea on Friday to think again about its plan to launch a satellite with a long-range rocket, saying he was "seriously concerned" by Pyongyang's announcement.
"The Secretary-General urges the DPRK (Democratic People's Republic of Korea) to reconsider its decision in line with its recent undertaking to refrain from long-range missile launches," Ban's office said in a statement.
He urged North Korea to comply with UN Security Council resolutions that ban "any launch using ballistic missile technology."
