North Korea – Missile launches (26 August 2017)


France strongly condemns the new missile launches carried out by North Korea this morning towards the Sea of Japan.

These launches, which violate United Nations Security Council resolutions, are a threat to regional and international security.

France calls on North Korea to comply with its international obligations and to carry out a complete, verifiable and irreversible dismantling of its nuclear and ballistic programmes. France will continue to work closely with the Security Council and its partners to achieve this.
