North Korea could launch missile on April 4 | World | Reuters

WASHINGTON/SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korea's missile preparations suggest Pyongyang could launch a satellite into space as early as Saturday, an American defence official said on Thursday as the U.S. military monitored the situation.

At the United Nations, Japan's U.N. ambassador, Yukio Takasu, said his country would request an emergency meeting of the Security Council to discuss a possible response if North Korea launched the long-range missile in the coming days.

The United States and others have threatened North Korea with punishment if they launch the long-range missile.

"They're doing everything consistent with the launch of a space vehicle on April 4," the U.S. defence official told Reuters on condition of anonymity.
