German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel condemned on Saturday the latest missile launch of North Korea and called on the international community to take response measures.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, North Korea announced its second test of Hwasong-14, calling it a success. The ICBM’s projectile reached the altitude of 3,725 kilometers (2,314 miles) and traveled 998 kilometers for about 47 minutes, according to reports. It fell into the Sea of Japan.

“On behalf of the federal government I strongly condemn North Korea’s new missile test… The international community must give a joint clear response to this, with the aim of making North Korea abandon its illegal and dangerous missile launches and nuclear tests and follow the respective resolutions of the UN Security Council,” Gabriel said in a statement released by the German Foreign Ministry.

Gabriel also stressed the “particular” responsibility of the UNSC regarding the issue of North Korea’s missile tests, adding that Germany is committed to tightening the sanctions against Pyongyang.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in ordered state ministers to consider imposing unilateral sanctions on Pyongyang, while China urged North Korea to follow the relevant UNSC resolutions.
