Once more, North Korea conducted a missile test this Easter Sunday. Despite being unsuccessful, the test is a clear violation of the UN Security Council's relevant resolutions and further increases tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

Hungary strongly condemns the latest missile test of North Korea. In the current tense situation, the irresponsible steps of Pyongyang pose a serious threat to the security of the region.

We call on North Korea to dismantle its nuclear and missile programmes and cooperate with the international community towards de-escalation.
