TOKYO, September 16. /TASS/. Japan’s government hopes Russia and China will, like the entire world, contribute to the adoption of a new tough resolution of the UN Security Council regarding Pyongyang, Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said.
"We hope the entire world, including Russia and China, which have influence upon North Korea, will contribute to the adoption of a tough resolution," Suga said.
North Korea held its fifth nuclear test September 9. Pyongyang said the test "confirmed that the nuclear warhead may be mounted on ballistic missiles" of the country’s Armed Forces. According to the Republic of Korea’s National Defense Ministry, this was the most powerful device tested in the DPRK. Pyongyang has so far conducted four other nuclear tests: in 2006, 2009, 2013 and in January 2016.
The UN Security Council gathered September 9 for an extraordinary meeting and announced that it will immediately start work on a new resolution regarding North Korea.
UN SC resolutions ban the country from any activity connected with development of nuclear weapons and delivery means. The UN Security Council in March adopted Resolution 2270 that envisions an unprecedented toughening of sanctions against Pyongyang.
Despite that, over the past few months, the North Korean authorities have held more than 10 missile tests, the latest on September 5. The Security Council condemned the actions and threatened Pyongyang with new measures should SC resolutions be violated repeatedly.
