U.S. Condemns North Korea Satellite Plans

Clinton calls launch announcement 'highly provocative'

March 16, 2012

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Friday criticized a North Korean plan to launch a satellite into space as “highly provocative” and a “threat to regional security,” the Associated Press reported.

North Korea argued that the launch was part of a peaceful space program and exempt from a moratorium on long-range launches it had earlier agreed to. The development could jeopardize a recent agreement with the U.S. to exchange food for nuclear concessions.

"Such a missile launch would pose a threat to regional security and would also be inconsistent with North Korea's recent undertaking to refrain from long-range missile launches," Clinton said in a statement.
