Guterres calls for talks towards denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula

United Nations: UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has called for diplomatic dialogue between North Korea and all parties concerned with the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. This information was given by the spokesperson.

North Korea reportedly fired two short-range projectiles into the East Sea on Monday, the fourth test in less than two weeks, Xinhua news agency reported.

Guterres’ spokesman Stéphane Dujarric said, “I think there have never been so many times where we’ve seen so many launches from North Korea.”

And to us, this is a signal that we have to unite all parties to engage in diplomacy against North Korea to achieve what the United Nations wants to see. To ease tensions on the Korean peninsula in the short term.

Asked whether Guterres should reach Pyongyang, the spokesman suggested that existing mechanisms should be used.

“I think there are existing mechanisms and existing lines of communication,” Dujarric said. And I think these should be used, and the Secretary-General is very supportive of the diplomatic framework that already exists. But they need to be used.

South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said on Monday that the military had detected two projectiles. These are short-range ballistic missiles, which were launched from North Korea’s Sunan airfield in Pyongyang.

Pyongyang’s Korean Central News Agency said last week that the country tested two strategic guided missiles on January 15.

The country had also announced that it had successfully test-fired a hypersonic missile on January 5 and a similar missile on January 11.
