No: 166, 29 May 2017, Press Release Regarding Ballistic Missile Launch Conducted By The Democratic People’s Republic Of Korea On 29 May 2017

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 29.05.2017

We condemn the ballistic missile launch conducted by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) on 29 May 2017, which constitutes a flagrant violation of UN Security Council Resolutions.

The twelve ballistic missile launches since the beginning of the year constitute a clear testament to the persistent lack of respect of the DPRK to its international obligations and norms of behaviour.

The DPRK must abide by the calls and expectations of the international community which are also expressed in the UNSC resolutions, and should refrain from any action that would lead to escalation in the region.
