Washington has called on Pyongyang to stop launching illegal missiles


D + D – Normal size

The United States on Monday called on North Korea to “stop its illegal and destabilizing activities,” the fourth nuclear test of a nuclear-armed country this month, after Pyongyang fired two suspicious ballistic missiles.

In a telephone conversation with his Japanese and South Korean counterparts, US Ambassador to North Korea Chung Kim called on North Korea to respond positively to Washington’s “conversation” and “without preconditions.”

He reiterated the “unfulfilled commitment” of the United States to “protecting its allies,” according to a statement from the US State Department.

North Korea fired two suspicious ballistic missiles at what the South Korean military announced on Monday, which could be the fourth weapons test since the start of the year.

In recent weeks, Pyongyang has intensified its nuclear weapons tests as President Kim Jong Un’s regime seeks to improve its military capabilities. North Korea is subject to international sanctions and refuses to negotiate with the United States.

The U.S. ambassador pointed to North Korea’s tests as “the last in a series of missile launches” this month, “in violation of several UN Security Council resolutions.”

He reiterated to Seoul and Tokyo that the United States wants to work towards “complete nuclear disarmament of the Korean Peninsula.”
