North Korea – Ballistic missile launches – Press briefing by the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs Deputy Spokesperson (excerpt)

Paris, 25 March 2021

(…)

France is deeply concerned by information pointing to new ballistic missile launches by North Korea.

France condemns the resumption of these launches, the first in a year, which undermine regional security and stability and violate pertinent UN Security Council resolutions.

It calls on North Korea to abide by Security Council resolutions and to swiftly and in good faith begin the process of completely, verifiably and irreversibly dismantling its WMD programs.

France supports all initiatives fostering a resumption of negotiations and reiterates its commitment to actively contributing to the goal of denuclearizing North Korea. (…)./.
