The Argentine Republic once again strongly condemns the new launch of a ballistic missile on 29 August by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, which flew over the Japanese island of Hokkaido and landed in the Pacific Ocean, beyond Japan’s Exclusive Economic Zone.
This is a new act of hostility and provocation against the international community which overtly violates international obligations arising from United Nations Security Council Resolutions 1718 (2006), 1874 (2009), 2087 (2013), 2094 (2013), 2270 (2016), 2321 (2016), 2345 (2017) and 2371 (2017), which address the North Korean missile and nuclear programmes.
Argentina once again urges the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea to promptly comply with these Resolutions and end these systematic hostile acts in the region, which constitute a threat to international peace and security.
