(Communicated by the MFA Spokesperson)

In recent decades North Korea has acted in ways that have endangered the peace and stability of the Korean Peninsula and the region of the Middle East. In this context, Israel is deeply concerned by the latest launching of a long-range missile by North Korea in defiance of the relevant UN Security Council Resolutions. North Korea should indeed respect and comply with   its international obligations and pursue policies and actions that contribute to regional peace and security rather than undermine them.
