According to the ambassador, some Security Council members may want to have an outcome.

Asked what kind of outcome the council may produce, he said: “We will see as the consultation proceeds, what is possible.’’

Pyongyang fired a ballistic missile off its east coast on 2nd of October, and the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres voiced concern immediately after the missile launch.

“The launch of a ballistic missile is yet another violation of Security Council resolutions,’’ Guterres’ spokesman, Stephane Dujarric, had told reporters.
