PETALING JAYA: Malaysia condemns the launch of a ballistic missile by North Korea.

The launch at the eastern coast of Wonsan on Monday was the third launch within a month, making it nine launches to-date this year.

“The continued refusal by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) to immediately stop its nuclear and ballistic missile programmes, as prescribed by the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), has further escalated the already tense situation in the Korean Peninsula,” said the Foreign Ministry in a statement yesterday.

It added that Malaysia further condemns the flagrant violation by the DPRK of the relevant UNSC resolutions.
