NATO Par­lia­men­tary Assem­bly con­demns North Kore­an nuclear test

The Pres­i­dent of the NATO Par­lia­men­tary Assem­bly (NATO PA), US Con­gress­man John Tan­ner, con­demned North Korea’s nuclear test in the strongest pos­si­ble terms. “North Korea’s test of a nuclear device on Mon­day only serves to ratch­et up the lev­el of ten­sion in the Asia-Pacif­ic region. It does noth­ing to pro­mote North Korea’s secu­ri­ty and only rein­forces the need to ensure that North Korea’s nuclear pro­gramme is halt­ed.”
 
Tan­ner went on to say that, “I know that the mem­bers of the transat­lantic Alliance are unit­ed on this issue.” Speak­ing at the Spring Ses­sion of the NATO PA in Oslo Nor­way, he said, “We all call on North Korea to return to the Six Par­ty nego­ti­a­tions with­out con­di­tions and work toward a solu­tion that improves the secu­ri­ty of the Kore­an penin­su­la and the broad­er region.”
 
 The NATO Par­lia­men­tary Assem­bly brings togeth­er leg­is­la­tors from NATO mem­ber and non-mem­ber coun­tries to con­sid­er secu­ri­ty-relat­ed issues of com­mon inter­est and con­cern.  The Assem­bly is an inter­par­lia­men­tary orga­ni­za­tion and is inde­pen­dent from NATO.
