Pakistan, India, and Israel condemn Korea nuke test (Irony alert)

Pakistan has criticised North Korea's nuclear test, saying it was a "destabilising" development for the entire region.

Pakistan's disgraced nuclear scientist AQ Khan admitted in 2004 that he had passed on nuclear secrets to North Korea, Libya and Iran.

India has also expressed deep concern about the test and said it "jeopardises" peace and stability.

India and Pakistan carried out nuclear tests in 1998.

In a brief statement, the Ministry of External Affairs spokesman also said the test "highlights the danger of clandestine proliferation," an implicit reference to the nuclear links which have existed in the past between North Korea and Pakistan.
