Trudeau con­demns North Korean test­ing

Truro Daily News - - CANADA -

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.
