Nuclear tests in the DPRK will be conducted annually

Missile and nuclear tests of the DPRK for self-defense will be carried out annually, said on Wednesday the deputy head of the North Korean mission to the UN, Ambassador Lee Dong Il - RIA Novosti reported.

"Self-defense missile launches and nuclear tests by the DPRK aimed at self-defense will be annual," he said, speaking at an open debate in the UN Security Council on nuclear non-proliferation. However, he did not have time to continue the phrase, as he was interrupted by the South Korean moderator of the debate, since he significantly exceeded the allotted time for speaking.

According to the ambassador, the United States is artificially escalating the situation on the Korean Peninsula, conducting numerous military exercises, threatening the security of North Korea.

At the beginning of the discussions, the President of the UN Security Council, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Korea, Yun Byung Se, called on "to clearly warn North Korea that if it challenges the international community with another nuclear test, this will entail the most serious consequences."
