This launch is a brazen violation of multiple UN Security Council resolutions and needlessly raises tensions and risks destabilizing the security situation in the region,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said. “This action demonstrates that the DPRK continues to prioritize its weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missile programs over the well-being of its people.

The White House urgedall countries to hold the DPRK accountable for such violations and call on the DPRK to come to the table for serious negotiations.

The door has not closed on diplomacy, but Pyongyang must immediately cease its destabilizing actions,” Psaki dijo. “The United States will take all necessary measures to ensure the security of the American homeland and Republic of Korea and Japanese allies.

Corea del Norte completed more missile pruebas in January than it did in all of 2021, alarming South Korean officials who worry about its northern neighbor’s intentions.

North Korea in January attempted to justify its testing activity as an exercise of its right to self-defense. It has threatened stronger action after the Biden administration imposed fresh sanctions following two tests of a purported hypersonic missile in early January.
