United Nations - North Korea - Adoption by the security council of a resolution strengthening the economic sanctions (New York, November 30, 2016)


France welcomes the unanimous adoption by the UN Security Council on November 30 of resolution 2321, which strengthens the sanctions regime against North Korea.

The development of North Korean nuclear and ballistic programs represents a threat to regional and international peace and security.

We call on North Korea to immediately comply with its international obligations and to dismantle its nuclear and ballistic programs in a complete, verifiable and irreversible manner. We are continuing our efforts with all of our partners in order to prevent the development of these programs.

It is up to North Korea to concretely demonstrate that it is ready to comply with its international obligations by abandoning its nuclear and ballistic programs.
