State Department: North Korean Announcement of Missile Launch

Press Statement
Hillary Rodham Clinton
Secretary of State
Washington, DC
March 16, 2012


North Korea’s announcement that it plans to conduct a missile launch in direct violation of its international obligations is highly provocative.

UN Security Council Resolutions 1718 and 1874 clearly and unequivocally prohibit North Korea from conducting launches that use ballistic missile technology.

Such a missile launch would pose a threat to regional security and would also be inconsistent with North Korea’s recent undertaking to refrain from long-range missile launches. We call on North Korea to adhere to its international obligations, including all relevant UN Security Council Resolutions.

We are consulting closely with our international partners on next steps.
