UN calls on North Korea to abandon nuclear program and comply with safeguards

General Assembly votes to condemn DPRK nuclear tests, though China and Russia oppose key motion on denuclearization

The U.N. General Assembly (UNGA) overwhelmingly condemned North Korea’s nuclear tests and urged it to dismantle its weapons on Wednesday, while China and Russia were among a handful of states that voted against a key motion on Pyongyang’s denuclearization. 

The UNGA adopted over 100 resolutions and decisions related to nuclear weapons and other international security concerns, and 166 countries voted in favor of a motion condemning all six DPRK nuclear tests since 2006, with only North Korea opposed.
