Statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine on the ICBM launch by the DPRK

29 November 2017, 15:30

Ukraine resolutely condemns the launch, on November 28, 2017, by the DPRK of new intercontinental ballistic missile Hwansong-15 capable to carry nuclear payload.

This deliberate act of Pyongyang aimed at development of more powerful missiles as well as its threats to use nuclear weapons seriously endanger not only the security of North Korea’s immediate neighbors, but also global security and stability far beyond the Korean peninsula.

Сontinued missile launches by Pyongyang constitute an intentional and systematic violation of international law and relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions concerning the North Korean missile programme.

Ukraine aligns itself with all states, who have condemned this dangerous act of Pyongyang and calls upon the DPRK leadership to stop its provocations immediately.
