Statement by the Federal Foreign Office on reports of the testing of two ballistic missiles by North Korea

25.03.2021 - Press release

A Federal Foreign Office Spokesperson issued the following statement today (25 March) on reports of another test of two ballistic missiles by North Korea on 25 March:

The Federal Government strongly condemns today’s test by North Korea of two short-range ballistic missiles. Hereby, North Korea is once again violating relevant resolutions of the United Nations Security Council and irresponsibly jeopardising regional security.

We call on North Korea to refrain from further tests and to accept the United States’ and South Korea’s offers of dialogue without delay. North Korea remains obliged to completely, irreversibly and verifiably end its programmes to develop weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missiles.
