The U.N. security council is set to meet behind closed doors to talk about the ramifications of the latest North Korean missile test.

FOX's Gurnal Scott reports:

The U.S. and Japan requested the closed session meeting hours after the U.S. Strategic Command confirmed what it says were three missile launches on Sunday.

The missiles were tracked into the sea of Japan and were perceived by NORAD to be no immediate threat to the North American continent.

North Korea has been under sanctions because its missile program for the last decade. They were strengthened after a North Korean missile test last February.

The aim of the sanctions is to limit money coming into North Korea that it uses on its military program.
