North Korea – France condemns the launch of ballistic missiles (21 May 2024)


France condemns in the strongest possible terms North Korea’s May 17th launch of several short-range ballistic missiles, which constitutes another violation of UN Security Council resolutions.

France assures the Republic of Korea and Japan of its full solidarity. France urges North Korea to immediately cease its destabilizing actions, comply with its international obligations without delay, and return to the negotiating table so that it can engage in a process leading to the complete, verifiable, irreversible dismantlement of its nuclear and ballistic programs.

France and its partners remain fully committed to ensuring the implementation of relevant UN Security Council resolutions and encourage dialogue among all the parties.
