If anyone doubts whether the nuclear test carried out by North Korea is real, simply look at the reaction from Western nuclear powers, such as the United States and several European nations.
The nuclear test that North Korea conducted on Tuesday resulted in many reactions in the international community, which showed its concern by the new challenge of the Pyongyang regime.
U.S. President Barack Obama said on Tuesday that the âprovocationâ carried out by North Korea needed an immediate international response that was âfastâ and âcredibleâ to the North Korean regime. âThe United States will continue to take the necessary steps to defend itself and its allies,â he said in a statement. Although this is clear recognition that the test was real and that the United States is worried about it, it is difficult to remember such a weak answer from a U.S. president. Besides inciting conflict, Obama has no idea how to deal with North Korea, Iran or any other non-aligned nation.
China, Pyongyangâs historical ally, expressed its âfirm oppositionâ to the nuclear test. Last week, Beijing warned the regime of Kim Jong-un, through official media, that if it carried out a new test the country would âpay the consequencesâ, and even managed to utter the taboo word âbreakâ and mentioned a possible reduction in aid to North Korea. The survival of the North Korean nation depends largely on the support of the Asian giant, especially in terms of energy. Strangely enough, the United States and China are commercial partners and many of the goods the U.S. sells to China, end up in the hands of the North Koreans.
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, condemned the nuclear test describing it as âvery unfortunateâ. The defense minister said that Tokyo will review the sanctions imposed on Pyongyang. Besides punitive measures promoted by the UN, Japan, which has no diplomatic relations with North Korea since making its first nuclear test in 2006, applies a full trade embargo on the regime of Kim Jong-un, denying visas to North Koreans and limited financial transfers between his country and its Asian neighbor. As readers may have already noticed, the supposed opposition to North Koreaâs tests and the so-called sanctions are simply window-dressing practices.
The United Nations secretary general, Ban Ki-moon has said it is a âclear and serious violation of Security Council resolutions.â He also said he was confident that its 15 members would take âappropriate actionâ in the meeting convened for Tuesday. But the U.N. has done nothing about theÂ 2053 nuclear explosions conducted by the United StatesÂ or the continuous leakage of nuclear radiation in Fukushima. Neither does the U.N. say anything about the tons ofÂ nuclear waste dumped in ItalyÂ or the thousands ofÂ tons of electronic waste dumped in Africa.
Russia has also condemned âfirmlyâ the nuclear test, saying it is a violation of U.N. resolutions. âWe condemn these actions and, along with the launch of a ballistic missile performed earlier (December), we believe they are in violation of Security Council resolutions,â said a source at the Ministry of Foreign News Agency Interfax. This is the type of hypocrisy that turns any negotiation sour. It is a violation of U.N. resolutions when North Korea does it, but not when China, Russia andÂ the United States do it.
The British Foreign Minister, William Hague, said that the development of nuclear weapons by North Korea âis a threat to regional and international securityâ and that âit hinders the prospects for lasting peace on the Korean peninsula â.
