N. Korea’s two nuclear tests were ‘two too many’: CTBTO chief

North Korea’s 2006 and 2009 nuclear tests, the only two tests to have been conducted this millennium, were still “two too many,” said CTBTO Executive Secretary Tibor Tóth in an interview with South Korea’s Yonhap News.

Tóth called upon those countries that still need to ratify the CTBT to consider their own security interests, adding: “I’m convinced that, as in trade, currencies and finance, it’s better to have a rule-based environment, which is underpinning international cooperation.”

Tóth visited South Korea to participate in the 10th UN-Republic of Korea Joint Conference on Disarmament and Non-Proliferation Issues held on Jeju island from 7 to 8 November.
