North Korea claims nuclear test
Monday, 9 October 2006, 07:41 GMT 08:41 UK
North Korea says it has carried out its first test of a nuclear weapon, the state news agency (KCNA) has reported.
It said the underground test, carried out in defiance of international warnings, was a success and had not resulted in any leak of radiation.
The White House said South Korean and US intelligence had detected a seismic event at a suspected test site.
The White House said the reported test was a "provocative act", while China denounced it as "brazen".
In an unusually strong statement against its ally, China expressed its "resolute opposition" to the claimed test and said it "defied the universal opposition of international society".
Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who is in Seoul for a meeting with South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun, said the test was "unpardonable".
Ehrlich: There are many people around the globe that have found that many things Japan has done over history as truly unpardonable. It is demeaning that Japan uses that particular term for an underground nuclear test.
Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Aso said Japan had detected seismic waves, but could not confirm whether they were from a nuclear test.
We expect the UN Security Council to take immediate actions to respond to this unprovoked act
White House spokesman
South Korea said it would "sternly respond".
President Roh has called an emergency meeting of South Korea's National Security Council and put the armed forces on a heightened state of alert.
Seoul also suspended a scheduled aid shipment to North Korea, the state news agency reported.
Ehrlich: This is a highly important fact. Do you understand why?
US White House spokesman Tony Snow said: "We expect the UN Security Council to take immediate actions to respond to this unprovoked act."
When it announced the test, KCNA described it as an "historic event that brought happiness to our military and people".
"The nuclear test will contribute to maintaining peace and stability in the Korean peninsula and surrounding region," KCNA said.
KOREAN NUCLEAR CRISIS
Sept 2005: At first hailed as a breakthrough, North Korea agrees to give up nuclear activities
Next day, N Korea says it will not scrap its activities unless it gets a civilian nuclear reactor
US imposes financial sanctions on N Korea businesses
July 2006: N Korea test-fires seven missiles
UN Security Council votes to impose sanctions over the tests
Oct 2006: N Korea threatens nuclear test
South Korea's Yonhap news agency reports that the test took place in Gilju in Hamgyong province at 1036 (0136 GMT).
The BBC's Jonathan Marcus says North Korea's claimed test does not necessarily mean it has a fully-fledged nuclear bomb or warhead that it can deliver to a target.
Ehrlich: SenderBerl assures you that for NK to conduct the test that as said in the Major Interpretation released several hours before the test that NK has enough nuclear weapons to completely take out Japan.
But the demonstration of North Korea's capability is what will shake-up the geo-politics of the region, he says.
Our correspondent says there will now be pressure on the UN Security Council to push for a resolution condemning North Korea and probably demanding a stiff menu of economic sanctions.
The Japanese and South Korean foreign ministers have held a telephone conference call with US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to discuss the issue, South Korea's foreign ministry said.
The BBC's Rupert Wingfield-Hayes in Beijing says China's statement is an indication of how strongly it is angered by North Korea's action, although Beijing will still be loath to support tougher sanctions against Pyongyang.
Ehrlich: SenderBerl believes that NK conducting the test hours after Abe left Bejing for SK confirms that Hu Jintao slapped Abe in the face as I would have done for having the gall to come to Bejing as though China could not see his role for the NWO.
Ehrlich: I focus on the macro picture, but once in a while a hard to find article comes my way, on the micro level, that is worthy to share with you. While I do not attest to the truth of all the contents of other people's writings, from what I sense, I believe the author did a valiant job in trying to tell Americans the truth not only regarding the Kennedy assassination but she revealed it because she saw who was effectuating a conquest of our beloved nation.
The contents below should be read only after viewing the Kennedy assassination video.
Ehrlich: Please remember that one's primary focus should be at this point on 9-11, those behind 9-11, their true identities and the recognition that our nation has been conquered.
