The U.S. Department of State condemned North Korea's launch of a short-range missile while urging Pyongyang to engage in dialogue.

According to the AFP, the State Department released a statement on Monday, saying the North Korean missile launch is in violation of multiple UN Security Council resolutions, which poses a threat to neighboring nations and the international community. 

The statement added that Washington remains committed to a diplomatic approach and called on Pyongyang to come back to the negotiating table. 

Washington's labeling of the latest missile test as a violation of UN resolutions is leading to speculations that North Korea may have fired a ballistic missile strictly banned by the UN. 

The U.S. released a similar statement of condemnation after North Korea fired two short-range ballistic missiles into the East Sea on September 15.
