Canada’s PM ‘unequivocally condemns’ North Korean nut’s nuke bomb adventures

A Statement by the Prime Minister of Canada in response to North Korea’s latest testing of a nuclear weapon

From the Office of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau

If we don’t poison ourselves to death with our own pollution, maybe this screwball can finish us off with nuclear bombs, while China keeps his brutal regime by supplying it with  energy and other vital resources.

The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, issued the following statement in response to North Korea’s latest testing of a nuclear weapon:

“Canada unequivocally condemns North Korea’s‎ nuclear test of September 3 which, combined with its aggressive program of ballistic missile testing, represents a clear and present threat to the safety and security of its neighbours and the international community.

“This most recent test, which appears to have been of a much greater magnitude than its five previous nuclear explosions, is in direct contravention of multiple UN Security Council resolutions, and‎ demonstrates once again North Korea’s flagrant disregard of international law.

“These continued provocations by North Korea’s leadership, along with their profoundly dangerous push to develop nuclear weapons and test ballistic missiles near neighbouring countries, only serve to further isolate them.

“Canada has been steadfast in insisting that North Korea abandon its current course, including its aggressive rhetoric, and asks that it resumes constructive dialogue toward a comprehensive and verifiable solution.

“We urge the UN Security Council to take further decisive action to effectively constrain North Korea’s proliferation efforts, and call on all states to fully implement relevant UN sanctions.

“We will continue to work with key regional partners – including the United States, South Korea and Japan – as well as the broader international community, to counter the North Korean threat.
