The Federal Government of Nigeria has said it
is not in support of the ballistic missile tests
by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
In a statement by the Ministry of Foreign
Affairs and Intergovernmental relations, the FG
warned North Korea not to proceed with
actions that can jeopardise peace in the
Korean Peninsula and the world at large.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that the
North Korean Government should abide by the
United Nations Security Council Resolution
1718 which requires it to suspends all
activities related to its ballistic missile
programme.
The statement added that it would like the
DPRK to fully comply with that UN resolution
and desist from any act capable of
jeopardising world peace.
The statement reads in part, “Nigeria supports
the commitment of the United Nations
Security Council in working towards a
diplomatic and political solution leading to the
full de-militarisation of the Korean Peninsula.
“While we reaffirm our support for the peaceful
uses of nuclear energy and strong commitment
to nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament,
the Federal Government encourages DPRK to
return to the 6-party talks.”
Nigeria has joined the global community and
powers in condemning the Ballistic Missile
fired by the Northern Korea on Sunday.
