Position of the MFA in connection with the launch of a ballistic missile by DPRK on May 14, 2017

The Republic of Bulgaria follows with concern the escalation of tensions on the Korean Peninsula. We underline that the launch of yet another ballistic missile by the DPRK on May 14, 2017 is in direct violation of United Nations Security Council Resolutions 1718 (2006), 1874 (2009), 2087 (2013), 2094 (2013), 2270 (2016) and 2321 (2016) and poses a threat to regional and international peace and security.

We persistently call upon the DPRK to take into account the gravity of the situation and to abandon its provocative actions, to comply strictly with its international obligations and take concrete steps towards resuming dialogue with the international community and reducing tension on the Korean Peninsula.
