North Korea – Firing of missiles

France condemns the firing of ballistic missiles by North Korea during the night of March 25 to 26, 2014.

The firing of these missiles, which undermines regional security and stability, constitutes a further violation of the UN security resolutions which require North Korea to refrain from any activity related to a ballistic missile program.

France calls on North Korea to immediately comply with its international obligations and dismantle its nuclear and ballistic missile programs in a complete, verifiable, and irreversible manner.
