SECRETARY-GENERAL WELCOMES AGREEMENT TOWARDS DENUCLEARIZATION OF KOREAN PENINSULA
The following statement was issued today by the Spokesperson for UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon:
The Secretary-General welcomes the agreement between the United States and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea on denuclearization verification measures, allowing for the resumption of the six-party process and related activities. This is another step towards a verifiable non-nuclear Korean peninsula.
The Secretary-General urges all the participants of the talks to redouble their efforts to meet their respective obligations and to complete the “disablement phase” as soon as possible. The Secretary-General remains fully supportive of this process.
