Today (Monday), Israel joined the long list of countries that condemned North Korea’s hydrogen bomb test. “The State of Israel condemns the recent nuclear test conducted by North Korea,” the Foreign Affairs Ministry stated. “The test is a continuation of North Korea’s pattern of defiant activity.”

“North Korea must comply with all Security Council resolutions on this issue and refrain from testing and developing weapons of mass destruction and their delivery systems,” the statement read. “Only a determined international response will prevent other states from behaving in the same way.”

The statement was released several hours before the UNSC convenes to discuss the subject. The meeting, which was initiated by Japan and South Korea, is intended to lead to more sanctions.

South Korea stated that it is in contact with the US in order to receive aircraft carriers and heavy bombers due to concerns of more nuclear tests. According to reports, US President Donald Trump was briefed on all the military options against North Korea.
