    Sebastian Kurz condemned North Korea's latest nuclear test, calling on Pyongyang to stop unilateral provocations.

    VIENNA (Sputnik) OSCE Chairperson-in-Office and Austrian Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz condemned on Sunday North Korea's latest nuclear test, calling on Pyongyang to stop unilateral provocations.

    "Condemn #DPRK #nuclear test in strongest terms. This is not only a clear violation of Northkorea's intl obligations but also a reckless & irresponsible act in times of heightened tensions on Korean peninsula. #DPRK must stop unilateral provocations & return to negotiations. Call for swift #UNSC reaction," Kurz posted in its Twitter blog.

    ​Earlier in the day, North Korea claimed it had successfully conducted a test of hydrogen bomb, local media reported.

    An estimated capacity of North Korea's nuclear test may have reached 50 kilotonnes, South Korean media reported on Sunday.
