    Connie Lee has more.

    Citizens in North Korea may be celebrating the "success" of its third nuclear test.



    but world powers are mostly angry and condemning the action by young leader Kim Jong-eun.



    Even China, one of North Korea's major allies, expressed "firm opposition" to the test.



    In a statement, which revealed China's growing frustration with Pyongyang, China's Foreign Ministry said the communist nation, "heedless of widespread international opposition, has again carried out a nuclear test, to which the Chinese government expresses its firm opposition." 



    No other statements regarding sanctions or condemnation were added.



    Instead, the Chinese government renewed its call for a resumption of denuclearization talks, and asked the international community to remain calm and not worsen tensions. 



    Amongst Chinese citizens, the reactions are mixed.



    "I think this test has pros and cons.

    I hope it develops toward the good.

    If violent force is necessary, North Korea can protect itself for the sake of its own safety."



    Russia another steadfast ally of Pyongyang took a stronger stance against North Korea.



    Russia's Foreign Ministry said it "decisively condemned" the move and said the nuclear test plus December's rocket launch were in violation of UN Security Council resolutions.



    This latest remark signals that Russia could support further sanctions.



    Meanwhile, Japan expressed deep concern over the latest threat from Pyongyang.



    Japan's new Prime Minister Shinzo Abe met with U.S.

    Ambassador John Roos and asked for additional international sanctions on the communist nation, as the U.S.

    has committed to defend its Asian allies.



    "The United States stands steadfast in its defense commitment to its allies in this region.."



    With new leaders not just in Japan, but also in China and South Korea, experts say there is increasing concern that the North Korean nuclear test could destabilize the region.
