CNDP Statement on Nuclear test by North Korea

On

The Coalition of Nuclear Disarmament and Peace(CNDP) strongly condemns the nuclear weapons test by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK). The North Korean regime, which is highly authoritarian and militarist, has tried to consolidate itself internally through such aggressive moves. Carried out in defiance of the opinions of international citizens groups desirous of peace, this display of nuclear bravado will only embolden the nuclear hawks in other countries, including the United States, Japan and South Korea, thereby promoting the possibility of further nuclear weapons acquisition while adding fuel to regional and global militarization and arms racing.
