North Korea – Missile launches (19 July 2023)


France utterly condemns North Korea’s July 19th launch of two ballistic missiles, in its latest violation of UN Security Council resolutions.

North Korea’s repeated violations are contributing to rising tensions on the peninsula and in the region and represent a threat to international peace and security.

France urges North Korea to comply without delay with its international obligations and to embark on a process leading to its complete, verifiable, irreversible renunciation of its nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

Together with its partners, France remains fully mobilized in its effort to ensure the implementation of relevant UN Security Council resolutions and encourages dialogue among all the parties.
