E3 accuses North Korea of violating UNSC resolutions as recent missiles launches
The United Kingdom, France and Germany (E3) has condemned North Korea on breaching United State Security Council (UNSC) resolutions after the recent ballistic missiles tests.
The E3 has accuses North Korea of breaking the UNSC resolutions which prohibited North Korea from conducting short, medium and long - range ballistic missiles tests because of its recent “repeated provocative launches” in a briefing from Under – Secretary – General for Political and Peacebuilding Affairs Rosemary DiCarlo.
They stated “Serious efforts by North Korea to re-engage diplomatically and make progress on denuclearization are the only way to guarantee security and stability on the Korean peninsula and in the region”.
They also requested that “international sanctions must remain in place and be fully and strictly enforced until North Korea’s nuclear and ballistic missile programs are dismantled. It is vital that the Security Council shows unity in upholding its resolutions” to curb North Korea’s nuclear program.
Moreover, they called North Korea “to engage in meaningful negotiations with the US” resolving the denuclearization issue in Korean Peninsular since the meeting between the US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in the Demilitarized Zone on June 30.
North Korea had fired a series of short - range missiles to demonstrate its opposing sign as the US and South Korea had carried out the joint military drills.
Especially, North Korea has recently let two additional missiles blast off from its eastern coast to test a "newly developed super-large multiple rocket launcher" on Saturday (August 24) and confirmed that its leader Kim Jong Un had attended to observe the test in the following day.
After the North Korea’s confirmation, the US President Donald Trump had said that he was not happy about the launch, however, he insisted Kim Jong Un was not “in violation of any agreement” on Sunday (August 24).
