UK, France and Germany condemn North Korea missile launches

The United Kingdom, France and Germany on Thursday condemned North Korea's latest ballistic missile launches as violations of U.N. sanctions and urged Pyongyang to engage in "meaningful negotiations" with the United States on eliminating its nuclear weapons.


The three countries also urged North Korea "to take concrete steps toward its complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization" and said international sanctions should remain in place and be fully enforced until its nuclear and ballistic missile programs are dismantled.


The UK, France and Germany issued a joint statement to reporters after a closed Security Council briefing by U.N. political chief Rosemary DiCarlo and consultations. The council did not issue any statement.
