Singapore is deeply concerned and extremely disappointed by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea's (DPRK) conduct of yet another nuclear test on 9 September 2016. This deliberate and provocative act seriously jeopardises the peace and stability of the region. These actions, including the recent missile tests, are flagrant breaches of the relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions, including resolution 2270 adopted in March 2016. We strongly urge the DPRK to desist from such actions, and reiterate our long-standing call for the DPRK to abide by its international obligations and commitments. The DPRK can share in our region's peace and prosperity only if it changes course and works to integrate itself with the region. Singapore intends to make its views known to the DPRK government through its Ambassador in Singapore.
