On February 12, Ambassador Tsuneo Nishida, Permanent Representative of Japan to the United Nations, conducted a stakeout with Japanese correspondents after the Security Council meeting on North Koreas nuclear test.


During the stakeout, Ambassador Nishida expressed sincere regret at North Koreas decision to conduct the nuclear test which the international community had been pressing the country to refrain from carrying out. He stated that the Japanese government takes this act very seriously, expressing sharp protest and dispraising the act in a determined manner. In his final remarks to the press, he assured that Japan will cooperate with other countries in urging that Security Council to adopt a resolution which includes strict sanctions on the basis of the series of previous resolutions.
