NATO said in a statement released Sunday that it is concerned by Pyongyang’s destabilising pattern of behaviour, which poses a threat to regional and international security.
“I strongly condemn that North Korea has conducted a sixth nuclear test today. This is yet another flagrant violation of multiple UN Security Council Resolutions, including UNSCR 2321 adopted in November 2016,” said NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.
He added that the regime must immediately cease all existing nuclear and ballistic missile activities in a complete, verifiable, and irreversible manner, and re-engage in dialogue with the international community.
“I urge North Korea to respect its international obligations, and to abandon all threats and actions which contribute to tension and insecurity,” Stoltenberg said in the statement.
The United States is considering, in addition to other options, stopping all trade with any country doing business with North Korea.
