Pakistan on Friday condemned the nuclear test conducted by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), which "constitutes a violation of the United Nation Security Council Resolutions and is against the objective of a nuclear weapons free Korean peninsula."

The DPRK confirmed it has carried out its fifth nuclear test Friday and that it is now capable of mounting nuclear warheads on ballistic rockets.

"Pakistan has consistently maintained that all countries should comply with their international obligations and refrain from all action which could undermine peace and stability in the region," the Foreign Ministry said in Islamabad.

"We urge all parties to work towards the establishment of nuclear weapons free Korean peninsula within the framework of the Six Party Talks," a statement said.
