The nuclear test conducted by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea has angered and worried various world bodies and countries about the safety of the nuclear arrangements and the political will in that country. USA has been quite vocal in its protests from the very first and it has regularly pointed to North Korea’s tendency to test their missiles and nuclear weapons on the sly. On Monday, USA made a protest at the UN Security Council, against the current nuclear testing in particular and the overall nuclear program of North Korea in general. A strong resolution is sought from the world body. The protest was made on America’s behalf by Susan Rice, the country’s Ambassador to the United Nations (UN).

The statement was made by Susan Rice while attending the closed door meeting held at the insistence of the Japanese lobby as the world is facing a grave situation today. The problem is not concentrated in any individual country or region but will actually affect each and every individual of the world. Besides being a threat to the peace loving community, the event was also a gross “violation of international law”. It threatens international harmony and safety. Therefore, it is imperative that the UN takes decisive action to counter this challenge. A UN resolution is the first step towards this direction.

According to Susan Rice, the decision was unanimous at the meeting. A strong resolution is forthcoming and the need of the hour. There is no doubt that all the members of the United nations and the Security Council believe in an “unequivocal condemnation” of North Korea’s latest nuclear tests. To echo the experts, this underground test was as strong as the bombs that were dropped in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
