North Korea missile attack against Japan receives disapproval from Australia, New Zealand
(MENAFN) Australia and New Zealand on Tuesday criticized North Korea’s missile attack against Japanese territory, naming it "unacceptable behavior."
Australian Foreign Minister Penny Wong stated in an announcement that her nation powerfully criticizes North Korea's attack of a flying missile on Japanese territory – the initial such test to overfly Japan in 5 years (since 2017).
The Minister stated that "The test was a reckless and unacceptable act that threatens the security of our neighbors and partners and undermines the stability of the Indo-Pacific."
The chief diplomat blamed Pyongyang of carrying on to flout multiple UN Security Council resolutions stopping its dangerous ballistic missile as well as weapons of mass annihilation programs.
"We continue to be gravely concerned by North Korea’s apparent readiness to undertake a seventh nuclear weapons test," as said by Penny Wong, calling on Pyongyang to change path, abandon its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs, and continue discussion with the US and North Korea.
