Lithuania condemns in strongest terms the nuclear test conducted by the Democratic People‘s Republic of Korea (DPRK) this morning. This repeated act constitutes another major provocation and a flagrant violation of DPRK‘s international legal obligations, it exacerbates tensions in the region and poses unacceptable challenge to the global security and stability.
Lithuania strongly condemns these repeated acts, violating multiple UN Security Council Resolutions and urges the DPRK to fulfill all of its commitments.
Counting on the international community‘s unanimous condemnation of the illegal activities of the DPRK, and gravity of the most recent violation, Lithuania firmly supports adoption of appropriate additional measures to hold the DPRK to account, not confined by the measures already adopted or under discussion at the UN Security Council.
Lithuania calls for a tenacious international response and supports diplomatic measures and solutions in this situation.
