We, the Foreign Ministers of Mexico, Indonesia, the Republic
of Korea, Turkey and Australia (MIKTA), deplore North Korea’s fourth nuclear
test, which constitutes a clear threat to international peace and security.
The test was in direct violation of United Nations Security
Council Resolutions 1718 (2006), 1874 (2009), 2087 (2013) and 2094 (2013).
The test also contravenes international non-proliferation
norms and principles under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and the
Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty.
We note the previous Joint Communiqué of MIKTA on the
Situation in North Korea in April 2014.
We again urge North Korea to fully implement all relevant UN Security
Council resolutions and to refrain from provocative action that could threaten
regional peace and security.
