That is why, he added, any nuclear test “It is a violation of international UN resolutions and the same applies to alleged missile launches.”
He referred to the consultations held just today in the 2+2 format between the foreign and defense ministers of Germany and Japan to underline their support for that country.
In these talks, held before the start of the meeting in Münster of the G7 foreign ministers, “We emphasized that we stand with Japan and strongly condemn North Korea’s violation of international law just working with such a threat”.
