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."
