Statement attributable to the Spokesman for the Secretary-General on the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea

The Secretary-General strongly condemns the launch of yet another ballistic missile by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK). This is a clear violation of Security Council resolutions and shows complete disregard for the united view of the international community.

The Secretary-General urges the DPRK to desist from taking any further destabilising steps. The Secretary-General reaffirms his commitment to working with all parties to reduce tensions.
