N. Korea missile launches threaten peace - EU

The European Union condemned on Thursday North Korea's recent launches of ballistic missiles, stating they are "a threat to international and regional peace and security and go against international efforts to resume dialogue and engage in actions to help the country’s people." Pyongyang has performed six launches this year, most recently earlier on Thursday.

The EU's foreign policy spokesperson Nabila Massrali called on North Korea to "cease destabilizing actions and respond constructively" to invitations to dialogue extended by the United States and South Korea. "The EU is committed to the objective of the DPRK abandoning its weapons of mass destruction, ballistic missiles and existing nuclear programs in a comprehensive, verifiable and irreversible manner," the statement added.
