Report: The European Union has condemned North Korea's latest missile launch as a serious violation of UN Security Council resolutions.
 
In a statement Sunday, the EU spokesperson called on the North to halt these launches and abandon its nuclear weapons program.
 
Instead, the EU urged the North to engage in meaningful talks with the international community. It said it is ready to support such a process for dialogue.
 
Members of the EU also criticized the North's actions. 
 
France, in its first Foreign Ministry statement since President Emmanuel Macron's inauguration, said Pyongyang has again violated the duties of the international community. The French ministry said the missile launch showed that the North is a serious threat to regional and global security.
 
Germany urged the North to abandon its confrontational stance and abide by international norms. It said conflicts should be resolved diplomatically.
 
NATO said in a statement issued by its spokesperson that this is a time that requires the easing of tension, not provocation.
 
It said Pyongyang should cease all activities linked to its ballistic missile and nuclear programs in a complete, verifiable and irreversible manner and engage in a credible dialogue with the international community.
