European countries condemn North Korea's hydrogen bomb test

January 6 in the morning, North Korea announced a successful test of a hydrogen bomb. At the same time, Pyongyang says it has no intention to use the weapon unless the sovereignty of the country is violated. However, it has caused great concern in the world.

The UN Security Council held an emergency meeting yesterday.

A number of European countries condemned the test. In particular, Germany, France and Britain called Pyongyang's statement a provocation and a threat to peace and stability on the Korean peninsula.

The Belarusian Foreign Ministry also called for strict compliance with the decisions of the Security Council.
