United Nations - February 12, 2013

1. SOUNDBITE: Ban Ki-moon/United Nations Secretary General

"I strongly condemn Pyongyang's reckless act, which shows outright disregard for the repeated call of the international community to refrain from further provocative measures. The test is a clear and grave violation of the relevant resolutions of the Security Council. Together with the rest of the international community, I have repeatedly called on the new leadership in Pyongyang to give up its pursuit of nuclear weapons, address international concerns through dialogue, and to start building confidence with neighboring countries, particularly the Republic of Korea."

2. SOUNDBITE: Susan Rice/UN Ambassador for the United States

"North Korea does not and will not benefit from violating international law. Far from achieving its stated goal of becoming a strong and prosperous nations the DPRK has instead has increasingly isolated and impoverished its people through its ill-advised pursuit of weapons of mass destruction and their mean of delivery."

3. SOUNDBITE: Susan Rice/UN Ambassador for the United States

"To address the persistent danger posed by North Korea's threatening activities the UN Security Council must and will deliver a swift, credible and strong response by way of a Security Council resolution that further impedes the growth of DPRK's nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs and its ability to engage in proliferation activities."
