AUSTRALIA CONDEMNED THREARS BY NORTH KOREA



MINISTER FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS Senator the Hon. Bob Carr

NORTH KOREA

Foreign Minister Bob Carr today condemned the latest round of threats by North Korea against South Korea and the Asia-Pacific region, as more evidence of a regime that placed militarism ahead of the needs of its people.

I welcome calls by China and Russia for restraint by all parties and commitments by the United States regarding the defence of South Korea and Japan,” Senator Carr said.

I note also reports from our Embassy in Seoul that there is no immediate evidence of increased military preparations by North Korea.

Despite this, North Korea continues to pose a genuine threat to the safety of millions of people in our region.

United Nations sanctions impose strict embargoes on the supply of weapons and nuclear materials to North Korea.

Australia is considering further autonomous sanction on North Korea and has urged all nations to ensure strict enforcement of existing measures.”
