The United States warned on Monday it would raise concerns at the United Nations over the latest North Korean missile tests carried out in violation of Security Council resolutions.

"We strongly condemn this and North Korea's other recent missile tests, which violate UN Security Council Resolutions explicitly prohibiting North Korea`s launches using ballistic missile technology," said Commander Gary Ross, a Pentagon spokesman, after Pyongyang test-fired three ballistic missiles.

"We intend to raise our concerns at the UN to bolster international resolve in holding the DPRK accountable for these provocative actions."
