Joint Communiqué of Mexico, Indonesia, the Republic of Korea, Turkey and Australia (MIKTA) on the Situation in North Korea
Ministers expressed grave concern over the recent ballistic missile launches by North Korea and its statement of March 30 threatening to conduct another nuclear test. They urged North Korea to refrain from any further provocative actions that threaten both regional and international peace and security. Ministers also stressed that North Korea must dismantle all its nuclear and ballistic missile programs, including its uranium enrichment program, in a complete, verifiable and irreversible manner and fully abide by its international obligations under all relevant UN Security Council resolutions and its commitments under the 19 September 2005 Joint Statement of the Six-Party Talks.
