MOSCOW, January 6. /TASS/. The head of the Russian State Duma lower house’s defense committee called "frightening" the news about North Korea’s hydrogen bomb test, saying the nuclear potential of the country must be put under international control.
It was difficult at the moment to say for sure it had been a nuclear test, Admiral Vladimir Komoyedov told Tass. "Seismologists are needed, specialists who could say basing on precise measurements - yes or no," he said about reports on a hydrogen bomb explosion.
"Nevertheless, this is information that I think frightens the whole globe," he said. "The whole world, and first of all those who are interested - nuclear states, must somehow restrict this or establish some international control," he said.
In reply to the question whether he saw a threat directly to Russia, Komoyedov said: "Our relations are steady, Russia is not threatening anyone, it has all this since very long, but still they are neighbours," the deputy said.
North Korea announced earlier on Wednesday that it had successfully conducted a hydrogen bomb test.
