Poland’s Deputy Foreign Minister Marek Magierowski handed North Korean ambassador Ri Geun a note condemning the country's sixth nuclear test, the Polish foreign ministry said in a statement posted on its website.
Magierowski “emphasized that such actions are a manifest violation of international obligations of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, including numerous UN Security Council resolutions,” according to the statement.
The Polish foreign ministry also “called on the Pyongyang authorities to cease further provocations which dangerously escalate tensions in the region and can lead to incalculable consequences,” the statement said.
“Poland is vitally interested in the developments in the Korean Peninsula, among others in connection with our upcoming membership of the UN Security Council, as well as involvement in the work of the Neutral Nations Supervisory Commission in Korea,” Magierowski said, as quoted in the statement.
On Sunday, North Korea conducted its sixth and largest-ever nuclear test of an advanced hydrogen bomb for a long-range missile, marking a dramatic escalation of the regime’s stand-off with the United States and its allies, according to Reuters. (gs/pk)
