North Korean n-test highly provocative: Obama

Feb 12 2013, 2:14am CST | by

Washington, Feb 12 (IANS) US President Barack Obama condemned the North Korean nuclear test that was conducted Tuesday, calling it "highly provocative".

Washington, Feb 12 — US President Barack Obama condemned the North Korean nuclear test that was conducted Tuesday, calling it "highly provocative".

The test, which North Korea claimed was successful, was carried out at 11.57 a.m. in Kilju county, North Hamkyung province, reported Xinhua.

"This is a highly provocative act that, following its December 12 ballistic missile launch, undermines regional stability, violates North Korea's obligations under numerous United Nations Security Council resolutions," Obama said in a statement issued by the White House.

Obama said North Korea's latest move contravenes its commitments under the Sep 19, 2005 Joint Statement of the Six-Party Talks on North Korea's nuclear programmes and "increases the risk of proliferation".

Calling North Korea's nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs as a threat to US national security and to international peace and security, Obama said the US "remains vigilant in the face of North Korean provocations and steadfast in our defense commitments to allies in the region".

WASHINGTON -- By all rights, Democrats in the U.S. Senate should be measuring drapes for smaller offices as they head home for an election season that many analysts predict will hand control of the upper chamber to Republicans. But the man most directly in charge of salvaging a grim year for Democrats told HuffPost in an interview this week that there are a couple of not-so-secret but underappreciated reasons why there's an even chance the ...

On Friday’s broadcast of PBS’s “NewsHour,” New York Times columnist David Brooks explained that the current U.S. strategy in Iraq to combat ISIS is on track to include more than just air strikes, but potentially special forces as well. “What’s happening now, we’re in — we’re entering the mission creep phase.
