TOKYO—Japanese upper house of parliament has adopted a resolution condemning recent North Korean missile launches, which threaten the security of the international community, media reported Wednesday.

According to the Kyodo news agency, the resolution was adopted unanimously.

The ballistic missile launches are unacceptable, as they are posing threat for ships and aircraft as well as threatening the security of the world community and Japan in particular, the media outlet said citing the document.

The danger of nuclear tests and ballistic missile launches has reached a new level, according to the resolution.
