From the linked BBC article ...
North Korea is banned from any missile or nuclear tests by the United Nations.
However, it has conducted such tests with increasing frequency and experts say this could lead to advances in its missile technology.
Earlier this month, the North fired four missiles that flew about 1,000km (620 miles), landing in Japanese waters.
The UN ban remains toothless. Were the significant member of the Security Council, China, to take a more active interest I suggest that the UN ban might begin to matter. We'll see how that works out in the coming months, but I won't be holding my breath.
