"We should strive for a nuclear weapon free world. Korean peninsula continues to be a conflict zone. There are forces behind this, US is behind this. They are pitting South Korea against North Korea and opposing the very idea of reunification of two Koreas," Raja told reporters.

"There are certain political issues involved, but at the same time it is not in the interest of any one country or the world that countries go towards nuclear weapons," he added.

North Korean media announced that the country has successfully conducted its fourth nuclear test.

According to the media reports, the Hydrogen bomb test could take North Korea a step closer to developing nuclear warheads capable of striking the United States.
