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.

The Secretary-General condemns the launch of another ballistic missile of possible intercontinental range by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) on 28 July.

This is again a manifest violation of Security Council resolutions. The DPRK leadership must comply fully with its international obligations and work together with the international community to resolve the outstanding issues on the Korean Peninsula.

The Secretary-General reiterates his call on the DPRK leadership to respond to the Republic of Korea’s proposals to reopen communication channels, particularly military-to-military, to lower the risk of miscalculation or misunderstanding and reduce tensions.

The Secretary-General strongly condemns the launch of a ballistic missile of possible intercontinental range conducted by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) on 4 July 2017.

This action is yet another brazen violation of Security Council resolutions and constitutes a dangerous escalation of the situation. The DPRK leadership must cease further provocative actions and comply fully with its international obligations.

The Secretary-General underlines the importance of maintaining the unity of the international community in addressing this serious challenge.
