PH condemns North Korea nuke test

By

MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine government on Tuesday condemned the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’s third nuclear test, and urged North Korea to desist from acts of provocation.

“The nuclear test by the DPRK clearly violates UN Security Council Resolutions 1695 (2006),1874 (2009) and 1718 (2006), which demanded that the DPRK not conduct any further nuclear tests,” Raul Hernandez, Assistant Secretary and DFA spokesperson said in a statement.
“The Philippines deplores the series of acts of the DPRK that have violated these UN security council resolutions,” he said.

“The Philippines joins its international partners in urging the DPRK to desist from continuing these acts of provocation and to abandon all nuclear weapons and programs as committed to in the Sept 9, 2005 joint statement in the interest of genuine confidence building towards peace and stability in the Korean peninsula and the Asia pacific region,” he added.

Wire reports had earlier noted that North Korea had confirmed that it has tested a “miniaturized” nuclear device in defiance of UN orders to stop building atomic weapons.

Official state media reported Tuesday that it was conducted in a safe manner.

This third nuclear test could take North Korea closer to its goal of building a nuclear warhead small enough to be mounted on a long-range missile. With a report from AP
