Costa Rica Blames N. Korea's Nuclear Test
Costa Rican Embassy in Seoul Releases Its Message
Costa Rican Foreign Minister Manuel Gonzalez

The government of the Republic of Costa Rica strongly condemns the nuclear test conducted by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea on Jan. 6, 2016, which contravenes the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (CTBT).

The Costa Rican government says that the North Korea's nuclear test is a clear violation of the Security Council resolutions and an unnecessary provocation that disturbs peace and global security and increases tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

Costa Rican Foreign Minister Manuel Gonzalez called for the total elimination of nuclear weapons.

The foreign minister added that "Costa Rica, true to its pacifist tradition, expresses its legitimate aspiration to return to a world without nuclear weapons.

He also asks that no state perform nuclear tests, and nobody invites such state that has not acceded to the CTBT to do so.

The only guarantee against the use or threat or use of nuclear weapons is the total elimination.

Costa Rica will continue to encourage and support any initiative aimed at eliminating nuclear weapons.
