North Korea – Missile launch (15 January 2024)


France condemns in the strongest terms North Korea’s ballistic missile launch on 14 January, which is a further violation of United Nations Security Council resolutions.

France assures the Republic of Korea and Japan of its full solidarity. It urges North Korea to immediately halt its destabilizing actions, comply with its international obligations without delay and return to the negotiating table with a view to engaging in a process of full, verifiable and irreversible abandonment of its nuclear and ballistic missile programmes.

France is fully mobilized with its partners to ensure that the United Nations Security Council’s relevant resolutions are implemented, and it encourages dialogue between all the parties.
