United Nations---Stern rebukes worldwide followed North Korea's latest nuclear test on Tuesday. The United Nations, in particular, has conveyed a disappointed tone and frowning demeanor. It warns that even sharper criticisms may follow any further provocations.
This is the third known nuclear test by the charter Axis of Evil member. Past expressions of disapproval by other countries had been hoped to prevent further tests, but to no avail as the world has now seen. Further sanctions, expressions of unhappiness, and outright social cuts direct may next be attempted. It is hoped that the increased intensity of these will have some impact.
