ABU DHABI, Sept. 4 (Xinhua) -- The United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Monday slammed the sixth nuclear test done by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) as a threat to global security and stability.
A statement released by the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation said the test is a clear violation of the will and decisions of the international community, the Emirates News Agency reported.
The DPRK's recurrent nuclear tests pose not only a challenge to UN Security Council resolutions and the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons agreements Nike Air Vapormax , but also pose "a real threat" to global security and stability, the statement said.
It reiterated the need to abide by international resolutions and treaties on the non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, while calling on the UN Security Council to work to address those violations that undermine peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula and Northeast Asia.
The ministry also called on North Korea to abide by Security Council resolutions Air Vapormax 2018 , while urging all concerned parties to pursue dialogue and diplomacy in an effort to reduce tensions and maintain international peace and security.

The latest nuclear test has aroused strong condemnation by countries and international organizations alike, which called for addressing the new provocation and resuming dialogue to solve problems.

SEOUL， March 24 (Xinhua) -- A warning sign came on for South Korea's massive household debts as the portion of high-risk household debts increased in the past year amid rising expectations for heavier borrowing costs， central bank report showed on Friday.
Debts owed by so-called high-risk households amounted to 62 trillion won (55 billion U.S. dollars)， or 7.0 percent of the total， in 2016， according to the Bank of Korea (BOK)'s report on financial stability.
It was up from 5.7 percent， or 46.4 trillion won， of the total tallied in 2015.
The high-risk households refer to those holding more debts than the value of assets， who are incapable of paying back all debts even after selling all assets.
They also have a debt-service ratio above 40 percent. The debt-service ratio indicates the portion of debt-serving burden to total debts. The higher the ratio， the more they are required to repay every month.
The debt-servicing burden by the high-risk households are forecast to grow in the near future as the U.S. Federal Reserve indicated two more rate hikes for the rest of this year after raising its benchmark rate by 25 basis points earlier this month.
While the Fed's rate was raised to a range of 0.75-1.00 percent， the BOK kept its policy rate on hold at an all-time low of 1.25 percent. The BOK cut the rate from 3.25 percent in July 2012 to the current rate in June last year.
Helped by the lower interest rates， South Korean households were encouraged to purchase homes with borrowed money.
Household credit， including debts owed to banks and non-bank lenders as well as purchase on credit， posted the biggest annual growth of 141.2 trillion won， or 11.7 percent， in 2016 to reach a new high of 1，344.3 trillion won (1.2 trillion U.S. dollars) as of end-2016.
