UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Tuesday condemned North Korea's nuclear test, saying it was "deplorable" that Pyongyang had defied international appeals to refrain from such provocative acts.
"The Secretary-General condemns the underground nuclear weapon test conducted by (North Korea) today," Ban's spokesman Martin Nesirky said in a statement. "It is a clear and grave violation of the relevant Security Council resolutions." (Reporting By Louis Charbonneau)
