Minister: Violation against UN resolutions
1:46 min

Sweden, along with most of the world, denounced North Korea's nuclear test on Sunday and urged the international community to react.

Foreign Minister Margot Wallström said the test, by far the most powerful nuclear blast to date by North Korea, was worrying. 

Sweden is one of few western nations to have a diplomatic presence in North Korea and offered earlier this summer to help mediate the tensions between the country and the United States.
