Singapore's Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Wednesday said it is "gravely concerned" by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea's (DPRK) announcement that it has conducted a hydrogen bomb test. Singapore intends to make its views known to the DPRK through its ambassador in Singapore.

"This is a dangerous and provocative act with serious implications on the peace and stability of the region and the DPRK itself. It is also a clear breach of the relevant UN Security Council resolutions," the ministry said in a statement. "We strongly call upon the DPRK to desist from further such actions, and reiterate our long standing call for the DPRK to abide by its international obligations and commitments."
