Mexico condemns North Korean missile launch
The Government of Mexico condemned the launching of three rockets with ballistic missile technology carried out by North Korea, considering that they constitute a flagrant violation of international law.
In a statement, the Foreign Ministry (SRE, for its acronym in Spanish) said that for the Mexican government these actions alter international peace and security.
It also felt that such launches hampered multilateral efforts to foster an environment of stability and cooperation in the Korean Peninsula and Northeast Asia.
“Mexico reiterates that North Korea has an obligation to comply with the resolutions that the United Nations Security Council has adopted since 2006,” it said.
The Foreign Ministry recalled that such resolutions require North Korea to suspend ballistic missile launches and any other act of provocation.
It added that Mexico remains attentive to the follow-up of the Security Council on the matter.
