OFFICIAL STATEMENT 216
Spain adopts measures in relation to Democratic People’s Republic of Korea

​Spain has condemned the successive nuclear tests and ballistic missile launches carried out by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) in violation of the corresponding resolutions of the United Nations Security Council. The DPRK’s nuclear and ballistic programmes breach the regime of nuclear non-proliferation and represent a serious threat to peace in the region and to global security.

18/09/2017

The constant demands from the international community for the DPRK to renounce these programmes and start talks that lead to the complete, irreversible and verifiable nuclear disarmament of the Korean Peninsula have been met by a continuous challenge from its authorities, whose actions have caused increased international tension and represent a serious risk of conflict.

The Embassy of the DPRK has been warned by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation that the continuation of these actions would have consequences on bilateral relations. The Ambassador of the DPRK was summoned on Monday, 18 September and the position of the Government of Spain was reiterated to him. He was notified of the decision to consider him a persona non grata, and he must leave his post and the country prior to 30 September.
