Foreign Minister: Seoul to Continue to Put Pressure on Pyongyang

Foreign Minister Yun Byung-se said Friday that the government will continue to coordinate a response by the international community to North Korea’s nuclear ambitions and place pressure on the regime from all possible directions.

In a congratulatory speech at an academic conference marking the 30th anniversary of the opening of the Sejong Institute, Yun said the North made sure that it has no intention to give up its nuclear program during the seventh congress of the Workers’ Party.

Yun mentioned recent international gatherings, such as at the UN, the Munich Security Conference, the Nuclear Security Summit and the Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia(CICA), where participating countries, including those close to the North, upped the pressure on the regime compared to the past.

The foreign minister then underscored that the government is pushing forward with its diplomacy concerning the North with a strategic roadmap.

Yun said that President Park Geun-hye’s scheduled visit to Africa and her planned special speech at the Africa Union will carry a significant meaning in that regard. North Korea has maintained close ties with African countries.
