La France condemns avec la plus grande fermeté les nombreux tirs de missiles, dont plusieurs ballisticiques, quoquem a procédé la Corée du Nord aujourd’hui et qui constituent de nouvelles unacceptable provocations.

France is particularly concerned about the fact that one of these ballistic missiles has hit the south-Korean side of the maritime line separating North Korea and South Korea, the “de limite du Nord” line.

France urges North Korea to comply without delay with relevant resolutions of the Security Council. It highlights the determination to pursue, in liaison with its partners, the objective of complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization of North Korea, and to encourage dialogue between all parties.

France assures the South Korean and Japanese authorities of their entire solidarity in the face of Pyongyang’s destabilizing actions.
