UNITED NATIONS, July 5 : The UN Security Council plans to meet in closed session on North Korea's long-anticipated missile testing today, a French spokesman said.

The meeting was requested yesterday by Japan's UN ambassador, Kenzo Oshima, who is expected to introduce a draft resolution, diplomatic sources said.

France's UN Ambassador, Jean-Marc de la Sabliere, whose country holds the council presidency for July, said in an e-mail he had ''received a request from the Ambassador of Japan for a meeting of the Security Council (on) the launch of missiles by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.''
