Concerning the UN Security Council’ resolution 1874
06-13-2009, 03:07 pm

MINISTRY OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS' SPOKESMAN MR. LE DZUNG
ANSWERS QUESTION ON 13th  JUNE 2009

Question: Please provide Vietnam’s reaction to UN Security Council (UNSC) resolution 1874 (2009) on the 25 May 2009 DPRK’s nuclear test?

Answer:

It is Vietnam’s consistent policy to support a comprehensive ban on nuclear testing, non-proliferation of nuclear weapons and movement toward completely eliminating this kind of weapons. Vietnam supports peace, stability on and denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and the efforts to achieve these objectives.

In this spirit, we share the concern about the nuclear test by DPRK and view that the measures in the new UNSC resolution aim to prevent nuclear proliferation and ballistic missile development in accordance with the UNSC resolution 1718. The implementation of this resolution must avoid adversely affecting the normal life of the population, and humanitarian, development as well as other legitimate economic activities.      
 
We would like to emphasize that the new resolution affirms the Security Council’s commitment to a peaceful, diplomatic and political solution to the current situation; at the same time welcomes countries to facilitate a comprehensive solution through dialogues, including the Six- Party Talks mechanism, and to refrain from any action that might aggravate tensions.
