North Korea / Ballistic missile launch

France condemns the firing of ballistic missiles by North Korea on October 17 and 20.

These new unacceptable provocations are in violation of UNSCR 2270 of March 2, 2016. They constitute a threat to regional and international peace and security and present a challenge to the non-proliferation regime and a continuous threat to aircraft and vessels passing through the region.

France calls for the complete, verifiable and irreversible dismantling of North Korea's nuclear and ballistic programs. We are in close contact with our main partners, notably our Asian partners, with respect to this issue.
