Brussels, Jun 22 (IBNS): NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg on Wednesday condemned the missile launch by North Korea, according to reports.
Here is the full text of NATO Secretary General's statement: 

"I strongly condemn the launch by North Korea of two ballistic missiles.

These repeated provocative actions by DPRK undermine international security and dialogue.  

The launches are in direct violation of several United Nations Security Council Resolutions, including Resolution 2270 adopted on 2 Marchthis year, which repeatedly call for North Korea to cease all activities related to its ballistic missile programme.

NATO continues to call on North Korea to fully comply with its obligations under international law, not to threaten with or conduct any launches using ballistic missile technology and to refrain from any further provocative actions."
