UN Secretary General António Guterres urged “not to miss opportunity” of peaceful resolution to the standoff over North Korea's nuclear program, AP reported.
Speaking at Security Conference on Friday, António Guterres noted, that the world first faces the threat of a nuclear conflict since the end of the Cold War because of events over North Korean nuclear ambitions.
According to him, it is necessary to ensure that the United States and North Korea can “come together and have a meaningful discussion.”
“I believe the United States is ready to do so. ... It's absolutely essential to keep the pressure over North Korea and to convince North Korea that it is absolutely vital for them to come to the table.”
