Statement

Statement by Minister for Foreign Affairs Margot Wallström on the reported hydrogen bomb test by North Korea

Published

The reports of a nuclear test in North Korea are cause for deep concern. If a nuclear test has been carried out, this is a serious and provocative action that jeopardises international peace and security and deserves to be condemned.

A nuclear test is a flagrant violation of United Nations Security Council resolutions and the principles of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT).

Sweden, the EU and the international community call on North Korea to meet its international obligations and to respect United Nations Security Council resolutions and the principles of the CTBT.
