The UN Security Council will convene on Wednesday, December 11, for an extraordinary meeting on the situation surrounding the North Korea nuclear program.
“The United States has requested an extraordinary meeting on the issue of the North Korean denuclearization on Wednesday in an open format,” the source said.
U.S. President Donald Trump and DPRK leader Kim Jong-un agreed to resume denuclearization talks at the June 30 meeting in Panmunjom, which were suspended after the two leaders ’summit ended in February in vain. In accordance with this agreement, on October 5, representatives of the United States and North Korea met in Stockholm to discuss the prospects for normalizing bilateral relations, but failed to establish dialogue. The head of the DPRK delegation, Kim Myung-Gil, then announced the failure of consultations and advised the American side to better consider their position. At the same time, the State Department did not agree with this assessment and called the meeting constructive.
On December 8, the DPRK stated that it had conducted successful tests the night before at the Sohe training ground in the Tonchan-ni area. This will have a significant impact on changing the strategic position of the North Korea in the near future. At the same time, the agency did not specify what kind of tests in question.
