Reaction to DPRK's ballistic missile launch
(2017-07-31) Pakistan expresses its concern over DPRK's launch of ballistic missile on 28 July 2017. These actions are in contravention of the UN Security Council resolutions and undermine peace and stability in the Korean Peninsula as well as North East Asia.
We continue to urge the DPRK to comply with its obligations under the UN Security Council resolutions and to refrain from actions that could lead to escalation of tensions in the region and beyond.
Pakistan underscores the importance of maintaining peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula. We call on all relevant parties to pursue the path of dialogue and diplomacy to reduce tensions and work towards achieving a comprehensive solution.
