The Mexican government on Thursday Sept. 7 said it had declared the North Korean ambassador to Mexico, Kim Hyong Gil, persona non grata in protest of the Asian nation’s recent nuclear activity.
In a statement, the government said it had given the ambassador 72 hours to leave Mexico in a step meant to express its “absolute rejection” of North Korea’s actions, describing the actions as a grave threat to the region and the world.
North Korea’s biggest nuclear test to date was condemned around the world, with several leaders calling for new sanctions and U.S. President Donald Trump saying “appeasement” would not work.
The explosion of what North Korea said was an advanced hydrogen bomb came just days after it fired a missile over Japan.
The International Atomic Energy Agency, which has no access to North Korea, called the nuclear test, Pyongyang’s sixth since 2006, “an extremely regrettable act” that was “in complete disregard of the repeated demands of the international community”.
