Merkel reiterates Iran deal should be model for solving North Korea crisis

Report: British Suspect Iran Or Russia May Have Helped N. Korea Nuclear Program Merkel backs Iran-style diplomatic solution for North Korea
Sammy Stanley | 15 September, 2017, 02:11

Merkel has said she would be prepared to become involved in a diplomatic initiative to end the North Korean nuclear and missile programs, and suggested that negotiations held to reach the Iran nuclear deal could be a model. "The only conceivable solution is a peaceful and diplomatic one". The diplomatic process was "long but important", and eventually resulted in a "good end", she said. "Europe and especially Germany should be willing to contribute to this approach, playing a very active part", Merkel said. "Russian Federation and China have always used North Korea to seek concessions from the United States", he said.

"I could imagine such a format for the settlement of the North Korea conflict".

In March, it was reported that past year North Korea attempted to sell a form of the metal lithium, which can be used to miniaturize nuclear warheads to fit on missiles on the open market, possibly to Iran. The United States is fully entitled to defend its own territory, to defend its bases and look after its people. "London is closer to North Korea and its missiles than Los Angeles".

In late August, North Korea fired a ballistic missile over Japan and into the Pacific Ocean. Japan and France are said to be on board with the US furthering sanctions on North Korea. "We have to get this program halted because the dangers now of miscalculation, of some accident triggering a response are extremely great".

Iran agreed to curb its nuclear work in exchange for the lifting of most sanctions.

He told the same programme: "I will not speculate about whether article 5 will be applied in such a situation".

In addition, the report stated that Western officials believe that foreign countries likely supplied North Korea with either the equipment or the expertise needed in order to take additional steps on its path toward becoming a nuclear state.

New measures would include imposing an oil embargo, banning its exports of textiles and the hiring of North Korean laborers overseas, and subjecting leader Kim Jong Un to an asset freeze and travel ban.

China has concluded that radiation levels remain normal in the provinces near the North Korean border after the reclusive state conducted a powerful nuclear test last week, sparking concerns of residual environmental damage.
