U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Tuesday warned against the planned missile launch by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK).

"The response by North Korea (the DPRK) regarding the Japanese right to defend itself is unfortunate and a continuing example of provocation by the North Koreans," Clinton told reporters at an international conference on Afghanistan in The Hague.

"We have said repeatedly that their launch violates UN Security Council Resolution 1718 and that there will be consequences."

She said Japan has every right to defend its territory.

The DPRK has informed the international community of its plan to launch a satellite between April 4 and 8, and some Western countries continue to suspect the operation is a cover for the test-firing of a long-range ballistic missile.
