South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol, who met with leaders at the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and G20, brought Pyongyang's nuclear tests to the agenda. The world was alarmed after North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, who frequently stated that he would strengthen his army, placed an atomic bomb warhead on cruise missiles and fired them. Yoon emphasized the seriousness of the incident and called on leaders to ‘respond resolutely to Pyongyang's nuclear weapons’.

Pyongyang nuclear tests must be stopped: South Korea

South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol called on at Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and G20 leaders to resolutely respond to Pyongyang's nuclear weapons tests, the Associated Press reported.

"Full implementation of United Nations Security Council (UNSC) sanctions against North Korea, curbing the North's illegal activities to finance its weapons programs and responding decisively to Pyongyang's nuclear weapons," Yoon said.

Noting that the international community should "make it clear that its determination to halt Pyongyang's nuclear and missile programs is much stronger" than North Korea's willingness to continue developing these programs, Yoon underlined that the "full" implementation of UNSC sanctions could significantly hamper North Korea's financial resources used to develop weapons of mass destruction.

"I intend to call on ASEAN and the international community at the G20 to resolutely respond to North Korea's escalating missile provocations and nuclear threats, as well as to work together for the denuclearisation of the country," Yoon added.

NORTH KOREA HAD CONDUCTED TESTS

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, who threatened nuclear war against the United States and Japan, placed an atomic bomb warhead on cruise missiles. The development that alarmed the world was announced by Pyongyang. It was stated that the nuclear warheads fly 1 thousand 500 kilometers at an altitude of 150 meters.

Kim Jong-un started to realize his atomic bomb threats. Kim, who stated that he would work to increase the nuclear power of his army, alarmed the world with his last move.
