It appears that North Korea carried out a nuclear test at 11.57KST today. I strongly condemn this development, which is a violation of UN Security Council Resolutions 1718, 1874 and 2087.
North Korea’s development of its nuclear and ballistic missile capabilities poses a threat to international and regional security.
ts repeated provocations only serve to increase regional tension, and hinder the prospects for lasting peace on the Korean Peninsula.
Welcome to a more dangerous world, welcome to a world with a new nuclear power and to a world where the global powers are threatened.
Testing nuclear weapons is North Korea's way of saying we can defend ourselves, you have to take us seriously.
