Hanoi (VNA) – Vietnam is deeply concerned about the recent launch using ballistic missile technology by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), Foreign Ministry Spokesman Le Hai Binh said on February 9.

Responding to reporters’ questions, Binh expressed Vietnam’s deep concern over the DPRK, which defied the international community’s opposition, conducted a rocket launch using ballistic missile technology on February 7.

The DPRK’s action violated relevant resolutions of the United Nations Security Council and escalated tensions in the region, he added.

“Vietnam’s consistent viewpoint is supporting all efforts aiming to maintain peace, stability and development in the Korean Peninsula as well as in the region and the world.”

“Vietnam supports the settlement of all disputes via dialogues and affirms that the UN Security Council’s relevant resolutions need to be seriously implemented,” the spokesman noted.-VNA
