provocative escalation missile launches are banned
The US State Department described the launch as "a troubling and provocative escalation".
In recent weeks, North Korea has launched multiple short-range missiles - actions which have coincided with annual US-South Korea military exercises.
North Korean ballistic missile launches are banned under UN Security Council resolutions adopted in response to nuclear tests by Pyongyang in 2006 and 2009 and subsequent rocket firings.
The Security Council expanded its existing sanctions after another nuclear test in February 2013.
The council has previously imposed a series of sanctions on Pyongyang targeting its missile and nuclear programmes.wise trade lower tariffs on imports
