Sánchez, who is on an official visit to South Korea, has also rejected and condemned the North Korea’s ongoing ballistic tests and considers that these make clear the existence of “The North Korean Threat”. Precisely the last rehearsal took place this Thursday with the launch by Pyongyang of a short-range ballistic missile into the Sea of Japan.
“We are concerned about the development of North Korea’s nuclear program and its worrying escalation of arms”, admitted Pedro Sánchez this Thursday during the closing ceremony of the Spain-Korea Tribune in the South Korean capital organized by the Corea Foundation and Casa Asia.
“The unprecedented number of ballistic tests so far this year, in clear violation of UN Security Council resolutions warns of the validity of the North Korean threat,” he added just hours after North Korea launched a ballistic missile.
One of the most threatened countries
For this reason, Sánchez took advantage of his intervention to warn that “despite the prominence that current news devotes to the war in Ukraine”, South Korea is one of the most threatened countries.
Sánchez stressed that in “times of extraordinary uncertainty like the ones we are currently experiencing”, what is needed “are reliable partners, with whom we share values, to continue building and defending an international order based on rules” and multilateralism.
The President of the Government is in official visit in South Korea. This Friday he will participate in a bilateral business forum between the two countries
