Brussels: The North Atlantic Council has expressed its grave concern at North Korea’s declared intent to launch a rocket using ballistic missile technology this month.

In a written statement issued to the press, the Council said, “Such an act would be in direct violation of United Nations Security Council Resolutions 1718 and 1874.  It would risk exacerbating tensions in the region and further destabilising the Korean Peninsula.”

The NAC has called on the North Korean authorities to meet their obligations under international law and comply fully with the will of the international community as expressed by the United Nations Security Council and the moratorium on missile launches.
