Statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in connection with the missile test conducted by DPRK on August 29th, 2017

Bulgaria is gravely concerned by the news of yet another missile launch by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), which has flown over the territory of Japan. We strongly condemn such actions which endanger the lives and security of the people of Japan and at the same time contribute to new escalation of tensions in the region.

The Republic of Bulgaria calls upon the DPRK to cease its provocative actions which violate multiple UN Security Council resolutions, abandon once and for all its nuclear and ballistic programmes in a complete, verifiable and irreversible manner, fully complying with its international obligations, and without delay engage in a meaningful and constructive dialogue with the international community in order to find a peaceful way out of the situation.
