Javier SOLANA con­demns the nuclear weapon test by north Korea

Javier SOLANA, EU High Rep­re­sen­ta­tive for the Com­mon For­eign and Secu­ri­ty Pol­i­cy (CFSP), made the fol­low­ing state­ment today con­demn­ing the nuclear weapon test con­duct­ed by North Korea:
“I con­demn the nuclear weapon test con­duct­ed today by North Korea. This act is a fla­grant vio­la­tion by North Korea of UN Secu­ri­ty Coun­cil Res­o­lu­tion 1718.
North Korea’s action fur­ther threat­ens region­al peace and secu­ri­ty in North East Asia, fol­low­ing its launch of a long-range mis­sile in April this year. These irre­spon­si­ble acts by North Korea war­rant a firm response by the inter­na­tion­al com­mu­ni­ty.
The Euro­pean Union will be in con­tact with its part­ners to dis­cuss appro­pri­ate mea­sures.”
