The Argentine Republic once again strongly condemns the launch of an unidentified ballistic missile by North Korea towards the Sea of Japan from the Banghyeon base, in the North Pyongan Province, near the border with China, at around 9:40 a.m. on 4 July.

This is a new act of hostility and provocation against the international community which overtly violates international obligations arising from United Nations Security Council Resolutions 1718 (2006), 1874 (2009), 2087 (2013), 2094 (2013), 2270 (2016), 2321 (2016), 2345 (2017) and 2356 (2017), which address the North Korean missile and nuclear programmes.

Argentina once again urges the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea to promptly comply with these Resolutions and end these systematic hostile acts in the region, which constitute a threat to international peace and security.
