Minister Martin condemns DPRK attack on Yeonpyeong Island

On behalf of the Government of Ireland, I unreservedly condemn the attack by the armed forces of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea on the island of Yeonpyeong last Tuesday 23 November. I extend my sympathies to the families of the bereaved and to those injured in the attack. I urge the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea to heed the calls made by the international community for restraint and to make genuine efforts towards achieving peace and stability in the region including through the complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula. This message has been conveyed directly to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea through my officials.

ENDS +++
25 November, 2010
