French leader says UN must react to North Korea

NNA – French President Emmanuel Macron has condemned “in the strongest possible terms” North Korea’s sixth nuclear test.

In a written statement, Macron “calls on the members of the United Nations Security Council to quickly react to this new violation by North Korea of international law.”

He also calls for a “united and clear reaction of the European Union.”

He says the international community “must treat this new provocation with the utmost firmness” to bring North Korea back to the path of dialogue and give up its nuclear and missile programs.

North Korea’s nuclear test Sunday was apparently its most powerful yet. State-controlled media say it was a hydrogen bomb. South Korea’s weather agency says the detonation set off a magnitude 5.7 earthquake. —AP
