"Members of the Security Council agreed to continue consultations on an appropriate response in accordance with its responsibilities, given the urgency of the matter," Rice said.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon Friday urged North Korea not to undertake any further provocative actions that would heighten tension in the region, a statement issued by his spokesman said.

"Despite its failure, the launch of a so-called `application satellite` by the Democratic People`s Republic of Korea on 13 April 2012 is deplorable, as it defies the firm and unanimous stance of the international community," the statement said.

"The launch is in direct violation of Security Council Resolution 1874 and threatens regional stability," it said.

South Korea and the US said it was a disguised long-range ballistic missile test that violated a UN Security Council resolution.
