UN Chief condemns North Korean nuke test

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Tuesday condemned North Korea's nuclear test, saying it was "deplorable" that Pyongyang had defied international appeals to refrain from such provocative acts.

 

"The Secretary-General condemns the underground nuclear weapon test conducted by (North Korea) today," Ban's spokesman Martin Nesirky said in a statement. "It is a clear and grave violation of the relevant Security Council resolutions." (Reuters)
