North Korea’s missile launch over Japan reckless and deliberately provocative, EU says

North Korea’s launch of a ballistic missile that flew over Japan was a “reckless and deliberately provocative act” that violates UN Security Council resolutions, a European Union diplomat said on Tuesday.

North Korea “must stop its missile launches, refrain from a nuclear test and start a meaningful dialogue” with the US, South Korea and other members of the international community, the statement said.

At the same time, he called on the UN Security Council to react to the “increasing threat to regional and international peace and security” that such actions represent.

On Tuesday, North Korea fired a ballistic missile farther than ever, sending it over Japan for the first time in five years, prompting Japanese authorities to sound the alarm, urging residents in some areas to seek shelter.
