MOSCOW, September 12. /TASS/.Ambassador of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea in Moscow, Kim Hyun Joon was invited to the Russian Foreign Ministry on Monday where Deputy Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov told him of the Russian government’s concern over a yet another nuclear test held recently in the DPRK.
"On September 12, the Deputy Foreign Minister, Igor Morgulov, invited Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea to Russia, Kim Hyun-Joon for a conversation, during which the Russian side expressed deep concern over a nuclear test conducted by the DPRK," the ministry said in a press release.
"The Russian side stressed actions of this kind undertaken by Pyongyang in violation of the UN Security Council’s resolution and are fraught with a further escalation of tensions between the two Koreas," the ministry said. "In this context, Moscow mentioned the absence of alternatives to a return to negotiations for settling the nuclear problem and other problems of the Korean Peninsula."
On September 9, North Korea carried a fifth subterranean nuclear explosion - and the most powerful one in the history of nuclear charges testing in that country. The previous four tests were held in 2006, 2009, 2013, and in January 2016.
