Turning to North Korea, the European Union, India and the whole
international community have a responsibility to act with resolve for a
peaceful denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula. The DPRK must abandon
its nuclear weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missile
programmes in a complete, verifiable and irreversible manner and
immediately cease all related activities. The 11 September resolution
unanimously adopted by the UN Security Council is increasing the
pressure on the North Korean regime. It sends a strong signal, showing
the unity of the international community. The European Union is
implementing the resolution and is working on adopting EU additional
sanctions to increase the pressure on North Korea.
regards Ukraine, the European Union remains strong and united in its
support for Ukraine’s territorial integrity, independence and
sovereignty. That is why we insist on the full implementation of the
Minsk Agreements and encourage all our partners to join us in this.
