A Federal Foreign Office Spokesperson issued the following statement today (28 September) on reports of another test of a short-range missile by North Korea on 28 September:
The Federal Government vehemently condemns today’s test of a short‑range missile by North Korea. With this test, North Korea has once again violated its obligations under relevant resolutions of the United Nations Security Council and endangered international and regional security and stability.
The Federal Government urgently calls on North Korea to abide by its obligations under international law, to accept the offer of talks put forward by the United States and South Korea and to enter into serious negotiations. North Korea remains bound to the complete, verifiable and irreversible ending of its programmes to develop weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missiles.
