TOKYO, Sept 3, (APP/AFP) – Japan confirmed that North Korea had
conducted a nuclear test on Sunday, and lodged a formal protest with Pyongyang after a major explosion at the isolated nation’s main test site.
“The government confirms that North Korea conducted a nuclear test
after examining information from the weather agency and other information,” Japanese foreign minister Taro Kono told reporters.
He said the government registered a protest with the North Korean
embassy in Beijing prior to the confirmation, calling any test “extremely unforgivable”.
