"The Secretary-General condemns the launch of another ballistic missile by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK). This action is in violation of Security Council resolutions and a threat to peace and security in the region. The Secretary-General calls on the DPRK to ensure full compliance with its international obligations and return to the path of denuclearization."
 
The spokesman for UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres delivered the statement on Monday.

"We favor a swift and firm reaction of the Security Council after the missile test. France has already reacted on the national basis, but I think it's up to the Security Council to illustrate maximum firmness on this issue, no doubt."
