India on Tuesday condemned the recently launched ballistic missile by Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. India’s permanent representative to the United Nations, Ruchira Kamboj said that India condemns the recent ICBM launch by DPRK (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea).
In a video uploaded by the official twitter handle of India at UN, Kamboj said, “Proliferation of nuclear & missile technologies is a matter of concern, as they have an adverse impact on peace & security in the region, including on India. We hope the international community & the Security Council can be united on this front.”
Kamboj elaborated on how the act is a violation of resolutions of the Security Council and how it affects the peace and security in the region.
“These launches constitute a violation of resolutions of the Security Council relating to the DPRK. They affect the peace and security of the region and beyond. India calls for full implementation of the relevant UN Security Council relations relating to the DPRK,” Kamboj said,
Ruchira Kamboj said that India calls for denuclearization towards peace and security in Korean peninsula.
She said, “We reiterate our continued support for denuclearization towards peace & security in the Korean peninsula. Ensuring peace & security in Korean peninsula is in our collective interest, going forward we’ll continue to support dialogue & diplomacy as means to resolve the issues.”
Earlier on Friday, South Korea’s military said that North Korea launched a ballistic missile at its eastern waters, a day after the North restarted its testing activities in what seemed to be a protest against US efforts to strengthen its alliances with South Korea and Japan.
The Joint Chiefs of Staff for the South stated in a statement that the launch took place on Friday but did not provide any information, such as how far the missile travelled.
