The Government of Mexico, through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, deplores and condemns in the strongest terms the nuclear test carried out by North Korea.

“This nuclear test, the sixth that North Korea has carried out, is an irresponsible, hostile and anti-international call for North Korea to cease its military nuclear program, as well as the development of ballistic missiles,” read a statement from the Mexican Foreign Ministry.

“North Korea’s nuclear tests are unacceptable, a threat to international peace and security, are a flagrant violation of international law and multiple mandatory UN Security Council resolutions, and hamper multilateral efforts to create an environment stability and cooperation in the Korean Peninsula and Northeast Asia.”




The SRE mentioned that Mexico reiterates that North Korea has the obligation to comply with the resolutions that the UN Security Council adopted since 2006, which require the suspension of its military nuclear program, launches of ballistic missiles, and any other act of provocation.

“Given the continuing flagrant violations of international law by North Korea, Mexico is analyzing bilateral diplomatic measures that it can apply,” the Foreign Ministry said.

He added that Mexico reiterates its solidarity with the Republic of Korea and Japan in the face of these reprehensible acts and calls on the members of the UN Security Council to condemn this nuclear test and take the necessary measures to ensure that North Korea cease this type of actions.
