WASHINGTON: North Korea’s missile checks are profoundly destabilizing and harmful, US secretary of state Antony Blinken mentioned on Thursday, including that Pyongyang has not responded to any diplomatic overtures from Washington.
The Biden administration on Wednesday imposed its first sanctions over North Korea’s weapons packages following a sequence of North Korean missile launches, together with two since final week.
Blinken mentioned in an interview with MSNBC that america had made clear it doesn’t have hostile intent towards North Korea and is keen to interact in talks with out preconditions.
“Sadly, not solely has there been no response to these overtures, however the response we’ve seen… has been renewed missile checks, one thing that’s profoundly destabilizing, it’s harmful and it contravenes an entire host of UN Safety Council resolutions,” Blinken mentioned.
“I believe a few of that is North Korea making an attempt to get consideration,” he mentioned. “It’s executed that previously. They’ll most likely proceed to do this.”
The US and its allies are targeted on ensuring they’re protected and that there are repercussions for the North’s missile exercise, Blinken added.
