COPENHAGEN: UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said Monday he was "deeply disturbed" by North Korea's nuclear test and was closely following events.
"I'm deeply disturbed by reports of a nuclear test by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea," Ban Ki-moon told reporters during a visit to Copenhagen.
"I'm closely following the situation in the region as well as consultations in the United Nations Security Council, which is to meet in an emergency meeting today in New York," he said.
