Armenia condemns nuclear test carried out by North Korea

Armenia has condemned the fifth and reportedly biggest nuclear test North Korea carried out today.

“We express deep concern over the nuclear test carried out by North Korea on September 9, which poses a threat to stability and peace on the Korean Peninsula and in Asia-Pacific,” Spokesman for the Armenian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Tigran Balayan said in a statement.

“Such actions hinder the international efforts targeted at the peaceful settlement of the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula,” Balayan added.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
