Germany strongly condemns North Korean rocket launch

12.12.2012 - Press release

Foreign Minister Westerwelle today (12 December) made the following statement on the margins of the Friends of Syria meeting in Marrakesh:

I condemn the new rocket launch by North Korea last night in the strongest possible terms. This deliberate provocation by North Korea is an irresponsible violation of its international obligations and heightens tensions in the region. The United Nations Security Council should give a clear response to this breach of international law.
