EU Ambassador Michael Reiterer met the Minister of Unification Cho Myoung-gyon on 25 September to exchange opinions about the situation on the Korean peninsula.
Ambassador Reiterer reiterated that the EU has been consistent in its position that the DPRK must cease provocations and abandon its nuclear, missile and other weapons of mass destruction programmes in a complete, verifiable and irreversible manner. The EU is swiftly implementing the latest UN Security Council Resolution and will work to ensure that the UN measures are fully implemented by the entire international community.
The objective of stronger economic and diplomatic pressure is to open up a political process to achieve the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula through peaceful means.
