PR No. 173 Islamabad: June 23, 2016
Pakistan expresses grave concern over reports regarding the latest missile tests conducted by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) which are in violation of UN Security Council Resolutions. We hope that DPRK will desist from steps that are inimical to regional peace and stability.
Pakistan has been a consistent supporter of a nuclear weapons free Korean Peninsula, as agreed by all parties. We believe that all countries should comply with their respective international obligations. We oppose any action which is detrimental to peace and stability in the region and militates against the prospects of reaching a peaceful and diplomatic solution to the issue within the framework of the Six Party Talks.
