NATO strongly condemned North Korea’s rocket launch on Wednesday, saying it went against U.N. Security Council resolutions and could destabilise the region surrounding Korea.
“This provocative act exacerbates tensions in the region and risks further destabilising the Korean peninsula,” NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said in a statement.
“NATO continues to call on the North Korean authorities to fulfil their obligations under international law.”
The rocket easily surpassed a failed April launch that flew for less than two minutes.
