Remarks made by MEA Official Spokesperson on the reported Nuclear Test by Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK)

New Delhi
October 9, 2006

We are deeply concerned at the reported nuclear test conducted by the DPRK. It is unfortunate that the DPRK has conducted such a test in violation of its international commitments, jeopardising peace, stability and security on the Korean Peninsula and in the region. The test also highlights the dangers of clandestine proliferation. We are monitoring the situation and are in close touch with several countries.
