Press Release Regarding Nuclear Test Conducted By The Democratic People’s Republic Of Korea

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 09.09.2016

No: 224, 9 September 2016

We are concerned to learn that Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) has conducted its fifth nuclear test today (9 September).

This development, which could have a negative impact on regional peace and stability, constitutes a new and clear violation of UN Security Council Resolutions.

Being an active supporter of endeavours against proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction and their means of delivery, Turkey strongly condemns this test, as well as the ballistic missile launches of 5 September, and considers them a threat to regional as well as international peace and security.

We expect DPRK to immediately fulfil its international commitments.
