UN chief volunteers to mediate with North Korea

UN NORTH KOREA | 15 de diciembre de 2017

United Nations, Dec 15 (efe-epa).- UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said here Friday that he was ready to act as a mediator in negotiations with North Korea to resolve the crisis over the Asian nation's nuclear-weapon and missile programs.

He spoke at the start of a ministerial-level meeting of the UN Security Council on North Korea that included participation by diplomats from Pyongyang, which usually skips such sessions.

"Diplomatic engagement is the only pathway to sustainable peace and denuclearization" in the Korean peninsula, the secretary-general said.

"While all concerned seek to avoid an accidental escalation leading to conflict, the risk is being multiplied by misplaced over-confidence, dangerous narratives and rhetoric, and the lack of communication channels," he said.

Guterres' proposal follows a visit last week to North Korea by one of his deputies, Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs Jeffrey Feltman, that marked the first high-level contact between the United Nations and Pyongyang in almost eight years.

The talks launched by Feltman in Pyongyang have continued in New York, fostering hopes for negotiations.

Guterres called the situation in Korea "the most tense and dangerous peace and security issue in the world today" and warned that military action would have "devastating and unpredictable consequences."
