Britain’s foreign ministry has summoned Hyon Hak Bong, the North Korean ambassador in London, to stress condemnation of Pyongyang’s reported nuclear test.
Pyongyang said it had tested hydrogen bomb as a deterrent to curb potential aggression from the United States.
“I summoned North Korea’s Ambassador today to stress in the strongest terms the UK’s condemnation of their nuclear test” minister Hugo Swire said in a Foreign Office statement. He added that the test violated U.N. Security Council resolutions.
“This is a clear violation of multiple UN Security Council Resolutions, and the United Kingdom supports the resolve of the UN to implement further significant measures against the regime“
North Korea announced on Wednesday it had successfully carried out a hydrogen bomb test, marking a huge step forward in the countries nuclear capabilities.
A magnitude 5.1 earthquake was measured in the country near the site of an earlier nuclear weapons test.
Pyongyang said it will continue to strengthen its nuclear program in order to protect itself against the US hostile policies.
