MOSCOW, March 16 (Itar-Tass) —— Moscow has called on North Korea to abstain from launching a satellite, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Friday.
“The report on the upcoming launch of a North Korean satellite causes profound concern,” the ministry said. “Russia has never denied the North Korean sovereign right to peaceful exploration of the outer space. At the same time, UN Security Council resolution 1874 binds Pyongyang to abstain from any launches using ballistic missile technology, irrespectively of the military or civilian use of rockets. The resolution was based on Chapter VII of the UN Charter, which is compulsory for all UN member states.”
“We call on Pyongyang not to oppose itself to the international community and to abstain from actions, which escalate regional tensions and create additional impediments to the restart of the six-nation negotiations on the nuclear problem of the Korean Peninsula. We expect all the sides to show maximal self-control,” the ministry said.
“The resumption of six-nation negotiations and the political and diplomatic settlement of regional problems is the only real way to improve the situation on the Korean Peninsula and to achieve the gradual lifting of restrictions the UN Security Council has imposed on North Korea, among them the right to peaceful rocket launches,” it said.
