Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine strongly condemns and finds actions of Democratic People’s Republic of Korea inappropriate and provocative, press service of the Ministry informs.
Launch of the so-called artificial satellite by North Korea may turn out to be a concealed test of a ballistic missile.
“Irrespective of the aim of these trials, the abovementioned launch, carried out right after nuclear tests at the beginning of January is a direct violation of UN Security Council resolutions 1695, 1718, 1874, 2094 and other relevant documents. Irresponsible actions of Pyongyang severely worsen the situation with security on the Korean peninsula, undermine peace and stability in the region”, - it is said in the report.
Ukraine urges Pyongyang to further refrain from such actions and keep to resolutions of the UN Security Council.
