STATEMENT BY THE MINISTRY OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS
ON THE RECENT PROJECTILE LAUNCH BY THE DEMOCRATIC PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC OF KOREA (DPRK)
ON 2 OCTOBER 2019
Malaysia expresses its deep concern at the reported launch of weapons-grade projectile by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) on 2 October 2019 into the sea in close proximity to Japan.
This development is counter-productive to the DPRK’s confidence building measures and the overall security of the Korean Peninsula.
As a peace loving nation, Malaysia hopes for the resumption of the dialogues, which contribute to reconciliation efforts.
