India deeply concerned over N Korean N-test

Reacting strongly to reports of North Korea conducting a nuclear test, India on Wednesday said it was a matter of “deep concern” and stressed its worry over proliferation links between North East Asia and its neighbourhood, an apparent reference to Pakistan.

India also called upon DPRK to refrain from such actions which adversely impact peace and stability in the region.

“We have seen reports that DPRK has conducted a nuclear test today. We are assessing the available information, including claims that this was a thermonuclear test. “It is a matter of deep concern that DPRK has again acted in violation of its international commitments in this regard.

We call upon DPRK to refrain from such actions which adversely impact on peace and stability in the region.” External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Vikas Swarup said.
