United Nations Security Council Resolution 1695

Adopted by the Security Council at its 5490th meeting, on
15 July 2006


The Security Council,
Reaffirming its resolutions 825 (1993) of 11 May 1993 and 1540 (2004) of 28 April 2004,

Bearing in mind the importance of maintaining peace and stability on the Korean
peninsula and in north-east Asia at large,

Reaffirming that proliferation of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons, as well as
their means of delivery, constitutes a threat to international peace and security,

Expressing grave concern at the launch of ballistic missiles by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), given the potential of such systems to be used as a means
to deliver nuclear, chemical or biological payloads,

Registering profound concern at the DPRK’s breaking of its pledge to maintain its
moratorium on missile launching,

Expressing further concern that the DPRK endangered civil aviation and shipping through
its failure to provide adequate advance notice,

Expressing its grave concern about DPRK’s indication of possible additional launches
of ballistic missiles in the near future,

Expressing also its desire for a peaceful and diplomatic solution to the
situation and welcoming efforts by Council members as well as other Member States
to facilitate a peaceful and comprehensive solution through dialogue,

Recalling that the DPRK launched an object propelled by a missile without
prior notification to the countries in the region, which fell into the waters in the
vicinity of Japan on 31 August 1998,

Deploring the DPRK’s announcement of withdrawal from the Treaty on Non-Proliferation
of Nuclear Weapons (the Treaty) and its stated pursuit of nuclear weapons in spite of its
Treaty on Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons and International Atomic Energy Agency
(IAEA) safeguards obligations,

Stressing the importance of the implementation of the Joint Statement issued on
19 September 2005 by China, DPRK, Japan, Republic of Korea, the Russian Federation and
the United States,

Affirming that such launches jeopardize peace, stability and security in the region and
beyond, particularly in light of the DPRK’s claim that it has developed nuclear weapons,

Acting under its special responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security,

1. Condemns the multiple launches by the DPRK of ballistic missiles on 5 July 2006 local time;

2. Demands that the DPRK suspend all activities related to its ballistic missile programme,

missile or WMD programmes;

legislation and consistent with international law, to exercise vigilance and prevent the procurement of missiles or missile related-items, materials, goods and technology from the DPRK, and the transfer of any financial resources in relation to DPRK’s missile or WMD programmes;

5. Underlines, in particular to the DPRK, the need to show restraint and refrain from any
action that might aggravate tension, and to continue to work on the resolution of non-proliferation concerns through political and diplomatic efforts;

6. Strongly urges the DPRK to return immediately to the Six-Party Talks without precondition,
to work towards the expeditious implementation of 19 September 2005 Joint Statement, in particular to abandon all nuclear weapons and existing nuclear programmes, and to return

Atomic Energy Agency safeguards;

7. Supports the six-party talks, calls for their early resumption, and urges all the participants
to intensify their efforts on the full implementation of the 19 September 2005 Joint Statement

8. Decides to remain seized of the matter.
