Statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine on the ICBM launch by the DPRK

16 September 2017, 14:55

Another one ballistic missile launch by the DPRK on 15 September, 2017 has proved Pyeongyang’s systematic disregard of the relevant UN Security Council resolutions and continuation of its aggressive policy, which endangers peace and security not only in regional, but also in world dimension.

Ukraine decisively condemns such act by the North Korean leadership and calls upon the DPRK to stop provocations immediately, abandon its rocket and nuclear programmes and restart a dialog with the international community, aimed at ensuring security and economic development as an integrated approach.
