Government of Nepal deplores the missile test carried out by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea on 15 September 2017 in violation of UN Security Council resolutions, including the latest ones.
It is regretted that DPRK has for some time carried out nuclear tests and launched missiles despite the repeated calls of the UN Security Council and international community.
In line with her consistent policy of general and complete disarmament of all weapons of mass destruction, Nepal stands against such tests and launches.
Nepal wishes to see peace and stability on the Korean peninsula.
