Macron Says North Korea Repeatedly Threatening Global Peace

France President Emmanuel Macron condemned North Korea’s nuclear test with “the utmost vigor” and said the government in Pyongyang has shown a “repeated willingness to damage global peace and security.” 

Macron called on United Nations Security Council members to respond to the test “rapidly” and asked for a “united and clear” reaction from the European Union, according to an emailed statement from his office. 

“The international community must treat this new provocation with the greatest firmness,” Macron said, repeating France’s call for a “full, verifiable and irreversible dismantling” of North Korea’s nuclear missile program.
