North Korea – Firing of a ballistic missile (4 April 2017)


France condemns the firing of a missile by North Korea on April 4 which fell into the sea off the coast of Japan.

France calls on North Korea to abandon the nuclear and ballistic program being conducted in violation of the UN Security Council resolutions. This program threatens regional and international security.

The repeated provocations by the North Korean leaders and their continued policy of violating the nuclear non-proliferation regime calls for a firm and united response by the entire international community.
