MOSCOW, July 02. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia calls for showing restraint and preventing any actions that escalate the situation on the Korean Peninsula, Russia’s Foreign Ministry says.
“We voice serious concern over Pyongyang’s launches of short-range missiles. We’d like to stress the need to prevent any actions that are not in conformity with the UN Security Council decisions,” the ministry says.
“We’re confident that it is important to continue the six-party talks on the Korean Peninsula denuclearisation and create effective mechanisms for ensuring regional security,” it says.
On Wednesday, July 2, North Korea launched two short-range missiles towards the Sea of Japan (East Sea) that flew some 180km, Japan’s Kyodo news agency reported.
So far, there have been no reports whether they were ballistic missiles or rockets from a new-type multiple rocket launcher.
On June 29, North Korea fired from the area of Wonsan port two short-range ballistic missiles, apparently versions of the Scud missile that are believed to have flown about 500km. Pyongyang reported that the launches had been made within the framework of military exercises.
