North Korea said Thursday its test-firing of a new submarine-launched ballistic missile earlier this week was not targeted at the United States.

In a statement carried by the North's state-run Korean Central News Agency, a foreign ministry spokesperson said there is no need for Washington to "worry."

The spokesperson expressed concern over what was described as "abnormal" reactions from the U.S. and the United Nations Security Council, which held an emergency meeting in response to the latest missile launch.

The official called the meeting "very provocative" and said the U.S. and the Security Council are "tampering with a dangerous time bomb."

North Korea added that the SLBM launch was its "rightful exercise of right to defense."

On Wednesday, Pyongyang confirmed that it fired a ballistic missile from a submarine the day prior and said "it will greatly contribute to putting the defense technology of the country on a high level."
