The State of Qatar welcomed the announcement on Saturday by North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to freeze nuclear tests, halt launch of missiles and close the nuclear test site in the north of the country.

In a statement, the Foreign Ministry said that the Korean declaration is a step that will pave the way for defusing tension on the Korean Peninsula and achieve peace and stability in the region and the world at large.
The statement expressed Qatar's hope that Pyongyang would follow its announcement by further steps leading to the denuclearisation of North Korea, while reaffirming its full respect for international obligations, all relevant UN Security Council resolutions and the ratification of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty, helping to halt the nuclear arms race in the world.
