MINSK, September 9. /TASS/. Belarus’ foreign ministry has called on North Korea to refrain from steps that can further aggravate tensions in the region, the ministry’s press service said in a statement following North Korea’s latest nuclear test.
"Lasting peace and stability can be reached only on the basis of dialogue and mutual respect. We call on North Korea to refrain from actions that might further aggravate tensions in the region, to get back to the negotiating table and join the fundamental international instruments in the area of nuclear nonproliferation," the ministry said.
Belarus was profoundly concerned to hear the latest news from the Korean Peninsula. The latest nuclear test in North Korea violates both norms of international law and provisions of a number of United Nations Security Council resolutions, the ministry stressed.
"Such actions constitute a threat for security and stability not only in Northeast Asia bout in the world in general," the Belarusian foreign ministry underscored.
North Korea conducted its fifth nuclear test on Friday. According to South Korea’s ministry of national defense, it was the most powerful missile ever tested by Pyongyang. The four previous nuclear tests were conducted by North Korea in 2006, in 2009, in 2013 and in January 2016.
