Together with the European Union High Representative for Foreign Affairs, the ministers criticized the “sharp contrast between the frequency of repeated and flagrant violations” of UN Security Council resolutions by North Korea and the Council’s “appropriate inaction” due to “obstruction” of some of its members.

This latest North Korean launch, they added, “undermines regional and international peace and security”.

Pyongyang’s new test this morning came after North Korea on Thursday launched a new type of intercontinental ballistic missile.

The G7 representative stressed that since last year there has been a record number of ballistic missile launches and tensions have escalated “with irresponsible and destabilizing rhetoric about the use of nuclear weapons”.
