North Korea - France condemns ballistic missile tests in the strongest possible terms (13 May 2022)


France condemns in the strongest possible terms the three ballistic missile tests carried out by North Korea on May 12. They represent the latest violations of UN Security Council resolutions prohibiting North Korea from carrying out any kind of launch involving ballistic technology.

France remains concerned by the increased number of ballistic tests carried out by North Korea since the beginning of the year, which represent a threat to regional stability and international security.

France continues to urge North Korea to comply immediately with its obligations and to return to the negotiating table to engage in a process of complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization. Together with our partners, we will remain fully committed to ensuring the full implementation of UN Security Council resolutions.
