Cyprus condemns the latest nuclear test by North Korea

Cyprus condemns the latest nuclear test carried out by North Korea on Friday and has called on the Pyongyang leadership to abandon its nuclear programme and resume negotiations with the international community.

In a statement, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said it “condemns in the strongest possible terms the latest nuclear test that was carried today by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. The nuclear test, the fifth of its kind, violates all relevant UNSC resolutions adopted since the first test in October 2006”.
