I have requested the floor to read out the statement issued by the Foreign Ministry of Pakistan on 3 September 2017. I quote:
“Pakistan condemns the reported nuclear test by the DPRK. Pakistan has consistently maintained that DPRK should comply with the UN Security Council resolutions and asked all sides to refrain from provocative actions. Pakistan urges all sides to display utmost restraint and return towards the path of peaceful negotiated settlement of the issue.” Unquote.
I thank you, Mr. President
