United Nations, November 22
India has joined the US and a dozen other nations to condemn North Korea’s recent intercontinental ballistic missile launch, with New Delhi voicing concern over the proliferation of nuclear and missile technologies, saying they have an “adverse impact” on peace and security in the region, including on India.
India’s Permanent Representative to the UN Ambassador Ruchira Kamboj told the UN Security Council meeting on North Korea on Monday — the Council met for the second time this month on the issue — that New Delhi condemns the recent intercontinental ballistic missile launch by North Korea.
The latest North Korean missile launch on November 18 which landed about 125 miles from Japan’s coastline came after other ballistic missile launches in the preceding months.
Kamboj said these launches constitute a violation of the resolutions of the Security Council relating to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and affect the peace and security of the region and beyond.
