The United Nations Security Council adopted not only Resolution 1695 against the North Korean missile test on July 5, 2006 as well as Resolution 1718 on October 9, 2006 and 1874 on June 12, 2009 against its nuclear tests. The Security Council also adopted a presidential statement against North Korea's long-range rocket launch on April 5, 2009. The Council’s endeavor has focused on restraining North Korea's provocative actions, and yet has not produced good results. However, its efforts should be continued not only to expedite and facilitate the process of solving North Korean missile and nuclear issues, as well as conflict resolution and arms talks between the two Koreas, but also to bring lasting peace and stability to the Korean Peninsula.
