Kerry says North Korea nuclear test 'highly provocative'

WASHINGTON - North Korea's nuclear test was a "highly provocative act" that threatened international peace and security, US Secretary of State John Kerry said on Wednesday in condemning Pyongyang's fourth nuclear test.
"This highly provocative act poses a grave threat to international peace and security and blatantly violates multiple UN Security Council resolutions," he said in a statement.
"We do not and will not accept North Korea as a nuclear armed state, and actions such as this latest test only strengthen our resolve," he said.
