Reacting to the nuclear test of North Korea, Iran has suggested that all the world’s nuclear weapons should be destroyed. It has also said that all nations should be able to use nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.
Iran is under U.N. sanctions over its own nuclear program, which the United States and some of its allies suspect is aimed at developing an atomic weapons capability. Iran denies that charge and says its program is purely peaceful.
North Korea confirmed the third nuclear test it conducted underground, a move that has been widely condemned across the globe including China. North Korea confirmed that it successfully carried out an underground nuclear test of a new, "miniaturised" device. The announcement that the detonated device was "miniaturised" will raise alarm around the globe, with its suggestion that Pyongyang has mastered the technically complex process of producing a warhead small enough to fit on a long-range missile.
In response to this act, the UN Security Council will held a meeting for emergency consultations. The 15-nation Security Council is currently presided over by South Korea and it had been calling for strong action against its neighbor in the event of a nuclear test.
