Singapore condemns the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’s (DPRK) launch of a reconnaissance satellite on 21 November 2023, which violates United Nations Security Council resolutions prohibiting the DPRK from any launch using ballistic missile technology.
This latest provocation by the DPRK raises tensions on the Korean Peninsula and jeopardises peace, security, and stability in the region. We strongly urge the DPRK not to proceed with any plans for further satellite launches.
Singapore reiterates our longstanding call on the DPRK to cease all provocations immediately and abide by its international obligations and commitments.
