Paris, May 25, 2009

France strongly condemns the nuclear test conducted by North Korea. She calls on North Korea to abstain from any new provocation, to implement without delay UNSCR 1718 and resume discussions within the six-party talks for the complete, irreversible and verifiable dismantling of her nuclear programme.

France will consult in the coming hours with her partners in the Security Council and in the region on the consequences of this serious act by North Korea, in particular on the strengthening of sanctions./.
