Malaysia condemns North Korean nuke test

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia strongly condemns North Korea's nuclear test Tuesday which was a direct violation of previous United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions, said Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Anifah Aman.

He said Malaysia joined the international community in calling upon North Korea to fully comply with the relevant UNSC resolutions, namely the UNSC Resolutions 1718 (2006), 1874 (2009) and 2087 (2013).

"Malaysia deeply regrets the action by the DPRK (North Korea) to conduct the nuclear test despite the concerns expressed by the international community.

"We urge all relevant parties to exercise utmost restraint and avoid actions that would aggravate the situation in the Northeast Asia region," he said in a statement Wednesday.

He said Malaysia strongly believed that all efforts should aim at reaffirming the commitment to maintaining regional peace and security, and establishing a peaceful environment in the Korean peninsula in particular and the world in general. - Bernama
