North Korea Nuclear Test: Civil Society Warns of New Nuclear Arms Race

GENEVA - The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) strongly condemns the nuclear test announced by North Korea on 6 January.

DPRK justified the alleged hydrogen bomb test as a way to protect their country from a potential attack by the US. The test by DPRK fuels the misguided and dangerous notion that the threat of nuclear weapons is an effective deterrent.

Nuclear weapons are unacceptable in their nature. Their use inflicts indiscriminate and barbaric harm on humans and disastrous environmental impacts.
