Press release – The Government of Hungary condemns, in the strongest terms, the missile test carried out by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea on 6 March 2017.
It is cause for grave concern that several of the missiles came down inside Japan’s exclusive economic zone. Pyongyang’s repeated provocations pose a direct threat to the stability of the region and to the security of both Japan and the Republic of Korea.
We call upon the North Korean leadership to immediately suspend all actions that violate the UN Security Council’s relevant resolutions and undermine the stability of the region. North Korea, with today’s missile launch, has demonstrated again that it refuses to cooperate with the international community. Therefore, it is indispensable that the international community respond to the provocations of North Korea in a unified manner.
Hungary is committed to supporting our partners in the region in the interests of expanding the sanctions against the regime in Pyongyang. We call upon all members of the international community to fully comply with and strictly enforce the restrictive measures in place against North Korea’s nuclear and ballistic missile programmes.
