With its biggest nuclear test drawing flak from a number of countries, India on Friday joined the international community to deplore the move by Kim Jong-un's regime
North Korea’s bizarre actions have often grabbed global headlines. With its biggest nuclear test drawing flak from a number of countries, India on Friday joined the international community to deplore the move by Kim Jong-un’s regime. According to a report, Ministry of External Affairs has voiced out its strong reservation saying, “We call upon North Korea to refrain from such actions which adversely impact peace and stability in the region and beyond.”
“India deplores the nuclear test conducted by North Korea this morning,” Ministry of External Affairs said.
Such nuclear tests are banned by the United Nations but North Korea has not paid any heed to it as this is Pyongyang’s second test in this year alone. With Kim Jong-un’s rhetoric becoming increasingly aggressive, India has chosen to take a stand on the issue.
So far, China has “firmly opposed” the test, Japan “protested adamantly” and the United States warned of “serious consequences” including “new sanctions”. The United Nations Security Council is likely to meet behind closed doors to discuss the issue.
