A South Korean government official was quoted on January 2 by the country's Yonhap news agency saying on condition of anonymity that Security Council debates on the launch should start in January.
"Security Council negotiations are likely to start early next week, although no date for the talks has been set," the official said.

An April launch attempt failed and was followed by North Korean pledges to ban military and nuclear tests.
Early January, South Korea took its seat alongside Australia for a
two-year mandate at the UN Security Council, which increases Seoul's leverage
in North Korean debates.
