Statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine regarding DPRK's another ballistic missile launch

23 května 2017, 16:14

Ukraine condemns DPRK's recent medium range ballistic missile launch that brutally violates respective UN Security Council resolutions. In spite of sanctions imposed by the international community the DPRK leadership resorts to further brazen aggressive actions.

By diverting state resources to the pursuit of ballistic and nuclear programmes Pyongyang causes suffering to its own people and leads to a dangerous spiral of destabilization in the region.

Ukraine believes that the ongoing provocations of Pyongyang require more effective and decisive reaction and supports all needed leverage to return the DPRK to the tenets of international law.
