NATO Chief Denounces North Korean Test

By  | 

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg says the nuclear weapons test announced by North Korea is a "clear breach" of U.N. Security Council resolutions and "undermines regional and international security."

Stoltenberg said in a statement Wednesday, "I condemn the continued development by North Korea of nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs and its inflammatory and threatening rhetoric."

He called on North Korea's government to "fully respect its international obligations and commitments."

North Korea said Wednesday that it has conducted a hydrogen bomb test - a move that would put the country a step closer toward improving its still-limited nuclear arsenal.
