TOKYO (Sputnik) –The South Korean parliament adopted a resolution Friday condemning North Korea’s suspected hydrogen bomb test, local media reported.
According to the Yonhap news agency, the resolution was approved unanimously by 207 lawmakers. The document states that the incident was a serious provocation and threatens regional security, and would further increase international pressure and isolation of North Korea.
Earlier in the day, the upper house of the Japanese parliament adopted a similar document.
The United States, Japan and South Korea, as well as Russia and China, took part in talks on denuclearization of the Korean peninsula with North Korea from 2003 until 2009, when Pyongyang withdrew from the talks.
