Malaysia criticises launch
The government condemned the launch of a ballistic missile by the North Korea in the eastern coast of Wonsan.
The Foreign Ministry said the launch was a flagrant violation of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions.
“This is the third launch within a month, making it nine launches this year.
“The continued refusal by North Korea to stop its nuclear and ballistic missile programmes, as prescribed by the UNSC, has escalated the already tense situation in the Korean Peninsula.
“Malaysia strongly urges North Korea to fulfil its international obligations in the interest of regional and international peace and security.”
In this regard, Malaysia called for the resumption of peaceful dialogue and negotiations between North Korea and relevant parties.
