North Korea – Launch of a ballistic missile (01 Mar. 2022)


France condemns the February 27th test of systems designed to support the development of a North Korean reconnaissance satellite.

This launch is the latest violation of UN Security Council resolutions that prohibit North Korea from any launches that make use of ballistic missile technology.

France once again urges North Korea to immediately comply with its international obligations, to return to the negotiating table, and to commit in good faith to a process in which it will fully, verifiably and irreversibly give up its weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missile programs.

It emphasizes that the current international situation should not serve as a pretext for North Korea to further violate its obligations.
