Statement Attributable to the Spokesperson for the Secretary-General on the Democratic People's Republic of Korea

 
The Secretary-General condemns the launch of yet another ballistic missile by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) on 15 September. This manifest violation of Security Council resolutions comes just days after the DPRK conducted its sixth nuclear test.
 
The Secretary-General calls on the DPRK leadership to cease further testing, comply with the relevant Security Council resolutions, and allow space to explore the resumption of sincere dialogue on denuclearisation. 
 
The Secretary-General will be discussing the situation on the Korean Peninsula with all concerned parties in the margins of the upcoming high level week of the United Nations General Assembly.
