France's Macron urges U.N. Security Council reaction to North Korea test

PARIS, Sept 3 (Reuters) - French President Emmanuel Macron on Sunday said the international community, including the U.N. Security Council on which the country sits, should react quickly and firmly to North Korea’s latest nuclear test.

“The President of the Republic calls on the members of the United Nations Security Council to quickly react to this new violation by North Korea of international law,” he said in a statement published by his office.

“The international community must treat this new provocation with the utmost firmness, in order to bring North Korea to come back unconditionally to the path of dialogue and to proceed to the complete, verifiable and irreversible dismantling of its nuclear and ballistic programme.”
