The Government of Hungary strongly condemns the nuclear test announced by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, carried out on January 6. By this act the DPRK has gravely violated relevant UN Security Council resolutions, undermined the inter-Korea dialogue and posed a serious threat to the security and stability of the region.

The Government of Hungary calls on Pyongyang to stop all provocations, to dismantle its nuclear programme and to return without delay to the Six-Party Talks, which can lead to a nuclear weapon-free, peaceful and long-lasting solution in the Korean peninsula.
