APLN Condemns North Korea Nuclear Test

Calling North Korea’s latest nuclear test an act of provocation that “can only increase regional and international tensions and hamper efforts to reduce nuclear risks,” the Asia-Pacific Leadership Network issued a statement calling on countries in a position to influence the DPRK to do so.


“North Korea can better enhance its national security by engaging constructively with the international community to build relationships with other countries based on mutual respect and support for global norms,” said the statement, issued by APLN co-convenors Chung-in Moon and Ramesh Thakur. “Development of weapons of mass destruction has the opposite effect, deepening the country’s isolation and increasing the dangers to its security, as well as further impoverishing the North Korean people.”
