Statement Attributable to the Spokesman for the Secretary-General On The Nuclear Test Conducted By The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea
The Secretary-General condemns the underground nuclear test announced by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK).
This act is yet another serious breach of the DPRK’s international obligations and undermines international non-proliferation and disarmament efforts. This act is also profoundly destabilizing for regional security. The DPRK is the only country that continues to break the norm against nuclear test explosions.
The Secretary-General reiterates his call on the DPRK leadership to cease such acts and to comply fully with its international obligations under relevant Security Council resolutions.
The Secretary-General remains in contact with all parties concerned.
The Secretary-General condemns the launch of another ballistic missile of possible intercontinental range by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) on 28 July.
This is again a manifest violation of Security Council resolutions. The DPRK leadership must comply fully with its international obligations and work together with the international community to resolve the outstanding issues on the Korean Peninsula.
The Secretary-General reiterates his call on the DPRK leadership to respond to the Republic of Korea’s proposals to reopen communication channels, particularly military-to-military, to lower the risk of miscalculation or misunderstanding and reduce tensions.
