"Vietnam is seriously concerned about the nuclear test carried out by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) on Friday," said Vietnam's Ministry of Foreign Affairs Spokesperson Le Hai Binh on Saturday.

Binh made the remarks while addressing reporter's inquiry over Vietnam's response to the latest nuclear test by the DPRK on Friday, the fifth of its kind in the country.

"The test seriously violates relevant resolutions of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), increasing tensions and threatening peace and stability in the region," said Binh on the website of Vietnamese foreign ministry.

"It is a consistent policy of Vietnam to support denuclearization in the Korean Peninsula, support comprehensive nuclear test ban, non-proliferation of nuclear weapons and towards nuclear disarmament," said the spokesperson.

"Vietnam urges all related parties to strictly comply with the UNSC resolutions and carry out practical actions to boost peace and stability in the Korean Peninsula," said Binh.
