The European Union insists that North Korea should stop missile launches and resume negotiations with the United States regarding the country's denuclearization. This is stated by Maja Kocijancic, the press secretary of the Foreign  Relations and Security Policies of the European Community.
“By launching two short-range ballistic missiles today (August 10 - ed.), which was the fifth such test in recent weeks, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) continues to undermine international efforts to build confidence and establish lasting peace and security on the Korean Peninsula, free of nuclear weapons," said Kocijancic.

According to her, the European Union expects the DPRK to refrain from any further provocations and fully comply with its international obligations, as defined in numerous resolutions of the United Nations Security Council.

"We expect that the DPRK will quickly resume negotiations at the working level with the United States, as agreed at a meeting in the demilitarized zone (DMZ) on June 30, and will create favorable conditions for constructive and sustainable negotiations," the EU emphasizes.

It is imperative for Europe that the DPRK take concrete and credible steps towards the complete, verifiable and irreversible abandonment of its programs in the field of nuclear weapons, weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missiles.

The EU is firmly convinced of the need to continue and develop the diplomatic process in relations between the DPRK and the international community.

We recall, August 10, North Korea launched two unidentified missiles that fell into the Sea of ​​Japan for the fifth time in two weeks.

Despite the June 30 meeting between Trump and Kim Jong-un, at which they agreed to resume the stalled talks, Pyongyang has already tested its missiles several times over the past two weeks.

Trump and Kim have met three times since last year to discuss ways to resolve the crisis over North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs. However, there was no noticeable progress in Washington’s efforts to force the North Korean leader to abandon his nuclear weapons.
