The United States said Wednesday that North Korea violated UN Security Council resolutions by firing two ballistic missiles into the sea but reiterated its willingness to engage the nuclear-armed state.

"The United States condemns the DPRK's missile launch. This launch is in violation of multiple UN Security Council Resolutions and poses a threat to the DPRK's neighbors and other members of the international community," a State Department spokesperson said, referring to the North by its official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

But the spokesperson added: "We remain committed to a diplomatic approach to the DPRK and call on them to engage in dialogue."
