Singapore "gravely concerned" by North Korea's hydrogen bomb test announcement
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."
