Seoul to Send Letter to ICAO, IMO Expressing Concerns of Pyongyang's Missile Tests

The South Korean government has begun diplomatic procedures to protest North Korea’s latest missile launches via international organizations overseeing aviation or maritime safety.

A Seoul foreign ministry official said Friday that the ministry directed the South Korean diplomatic posts in Montreal and London to send letters to the International Civil Aviation Organization(ICAO) and the International Maritime Organization(IMO) expressing concerns about the North’s ballistic missile launches on Wednesday.  

The ICAO and the IMO are located in Montreal and London, respectively.

Sending a letter to the organizations is an indirect way of lodging a protest against the North, as it will encourage the international bodies to warn Pyongyang over its missile provocations.

Seoul sent such a letter to the two organizations in March, following the North’s launches of short-range and intermediate-range missiles.

In response, the ICAO sent a warning letter to the North later, urging the regime to adhere to its obligation of reporting any event that could affect aviation safety.
