Cambodia has expressed its concern at North Korea’s test launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile.
The Foreign Ministry said yesterday that the launch last Tuesday was a clear violation of United Nations Security Council Resolutions.
The Security Council has expanded sanctions against North Korea after a series of missile tests this year.
In an interview in Khmer Times in May, North Korean Ambassador to Cambodia Jang Yun Gon said his country wanted Cambodia, as a member of Asean, to help advocate on its behalf for a peaceful resolution to the tensions.
“The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea) and Cambodia have good relations and a history of supporting each other – not only in bilateral relationships but also internationally,” Mr Jang said.
