5-Nation MIKTA Condemns N. Korean Provocations

A group of five middle powers including South Korea, known as MIKTA, has denounced North Korea's nuclear tests and ballistic missile launches.

Seoul's Foreign Ministry said the five nations including Mexico, Indonesia, Turkey and Australia held their eighth foreign ministerial meeting in Sydney on Friday and adopted a joint communique condemning the North.

In the statement, the top diplomats of the five nations said they "continue to express grave concerns over the increasing frequency of North Korea's provocations this year."

They said the provocations "diminish resources for addressing the humanitarian needs of the North Korean people." 

Urging the North to "immediately" and "fully" comply with all of its international obligations, the statement stressed Pyongyang's violations of commitments undermine the "rules-based" global order under the UN Charter that MIKTA works hard to uphold.

The group of five named after the countries' initials shares core values on the principles of democracy and market economy.
