All NATO allies are now within range of North Korean missiles, the Alliance Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg at the opening session of the Munich Security Conference.

At the same time, North Korea continues to develop its nuclear and ballistic missile programmes, which pose a threat to everyone, he said.

Stoltenberg urged to put maximum pressure on North Korea to abandon its nuclear programme, by political and diplomatic means and, not least, through effective economic sanctions.

“Russia and China have a special responsibility, as members of the UN Security Council and as neighbours of North Korea. Iran also possesses a proliferation concern. That is why NATO Allies place great importance on the Iran Nuclear Deal, but to be effective it must be properly implemented. All these developments forces us to pay more attention to nuclear threats,” he said.
