Costa Rica strongly condemns N. Korea nuclear test

The Republic of Costa Rica has strongly condemned North Korea’s nuclear test and issued a strongly worded statement against it. Details follow:
The government of the Republic of Costa Rica strongly condemns the nuclear test conducted by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea on January 6th, which contravenes the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty which is a clear violation of the Security Council resolutions and an unnecessary provocation that disturbs peace and global security and increases tensions on the Korean Peninsula.
Costa Rican Foreign Minister, Manuel Gonzalez, called for the total elimination of nuclear weapons, adding that "Costa Rica, true to its pacifist tradition, expresses its legitimate aspiration to return to a world without nuclear weapons and asks that no state perform nuclear tests, and invites those State that have not acceded to the CTBT, to do so."
The only guarantee against the use or threat of use of nuclear weapons is their total elimination and Costa Rica will continue to encourage and support any initiative aimed at eliminating nuclear weapons.
