    The latest nuclear test carried out by North Korea on Friday undermines stability in the region and violates UN Security Council (UNSC) resolutions, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said in a statement via Twitter.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — A fifth test, North Korea's most powerful nuclear experiment so far, is believed to have been carried out overnight at the country's northeastern nuclear test site.

    "Canada strongly condemns North Korea's latest nuclear test as a threat to regional stability and unacceptable violation of UNSC resolutions," Trudeau tweeted on Friday.

    ​The test was registered by monitoring services as having caused a moderate earthquake.

    Spain, the chair of a UN Security Council committee on sanctions against North Korea, called on Friday for an emergency meeting following the latest nuclear test.
