The Permanent Commission of North Korea to the United Nations has called on the UN Secretariat to hold a forum of legal experts to discuss legal grounds for the UN Security Council resolutions on Pyongyang.

"The Permanent Mission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea to the United Nations takes this opportunity to reiterate its strong request that . the Secretariat of the United Nations accept our proposal to hold international forum of legal experts at earlier possible date," Sputnik quoted the Commission's statement as saying.

In January, North Korea had proposed to the Secretariat to convene an international forum to review the legal basis for the UN resolutions. However, the UN Security Council and the Secretariat have failed to respond to their demand to date.

The council demanded that North Korea should not to conduct further nuclear tests, adding illegal missile activities were "greatly increasing tension in the region and beyond."

The council threatened to "take further significant measures including sanctions" to address the crisis of North Korea's missile launches. (ANI)
