UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres condemned the latest missile tests and urged Pyongyang to 'refrain from further provocations'.

The launches were the latest in a series of test-firings that violate UN resolutions barring Pyongyang from developing missile technology.

US Ambassador Nikki Haley said on Twitter that the world 'won't allow' North Korea to continue on its 'destructive path'.
