Statement by a Federal Foreign Office Spokesperson on the reported testing of two ballistic missiles by North Korea on 16 April

20.04.2022 - Press release

Germany vehemently condemns the testing of two ballistic missiles by North Korea. Every one of these ballistic missile tests constitutes a serious violation of the relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions and jeopardises international and regional security and stability.

North Korea is bound to the complete, irreversible and verifiable ending of its programmes to develop weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missiles. We call on North Korea to implement the decisions of the Security Council in full and to accept the offers of dialogue put forward by the United States and South Korea.
