Trudeau condemns North Korean testing
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has condemned North Korea’s latest missile testing and is urging the United Nations to take further steps to contain the country’s nuclear proliferation efforts.
Trudeau issued a statement Sunday that says North Korea’s “aggressive” missile testing program“threatens the safety and security of its neighbours and the international community. The statement calls on the UN Security Council to take further decisive action to effectively constrain North Korea’s proliferation efforts. Earlier in the day North Korea announced it had detonated its sixth and most powerful nuclear test yet, which the country’s government declared a “perfect success.” Trudeau also stated that Canada would continue to work with allies including South Korea, Japan and the U.S., but did not provide more details on his government’s involvement.
