Canada condemns North Korean missile launches


July 31, 2019 - Ottawa, Ontario - Global Affairs Canada

Global Affairs Canada today issued the following statement:

“Canada unequivocally condemns North Korea’s latest launch of short-range ballistic missiles. This most recent provocative act by North Korea, coupled with the launches of short-range ballistic missiles on two occasions in May, and again on July 25, risks undermining the diplomatic process under way since 2018.

“These missile launches violate successive United Nations Security Council resolutions and are a direct threat to international peace and security.

“Canada calls on North Korea to comply with its international obligations and take concrete steps toward the complete, verifiable and irreversible dismantlement of its weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missile programs. Diplomacy represents the only path to security, stability and prosperity for all people in the region.

“Canada supports efforts, at both the international and regional level, to restrain North Korea’s dangerous actions and reinforce security in the Asia-Pacific region.”
