Park warns 멞.K뭩 nuke test to cause domino effect in neighbors
MAY 31, 2014 01:23  
President Park Geun-hye said, 밡orth Korea뭩 additional nuclear test could trigger 몁uclear domino effect by providing neighboring countries with cause for independent nuclear armament.

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal on Wednesday, Park made the remarks, saying, 밃dditional nuclear test means that the North is genuinely taking a path of no return. Park went on to say, 밅hina plays an important role of buttress in maintaining peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula, adding, 밯e are continuously discussing various ways to practically materialize non-tolerance for North Korea뭩 nuclear use with parties to the six-way talks. The U.S. business daily carried the interview with President Park on the front page and page 18 of Thursday뭩 issue.

Receiving Michael Kirby, former chairman of the U.N. Commission of Inquiry, at the presidential office on Friday, Park said, 밫he report released by COI in February provided a new milestone for (the international community) to gain significant interest in North Korea뭩 human rights situation, adding, 밫he Korea Institute for National Unification translated the report in full, which will be published soon.

She also said, 밒 hope that North Korean residents will also have access to the translated edition so that they learn the international community`s interest in human rights violations and deprivation of freedom facing North Koreans. It remains to be seen whether Pyongyang will launch threat anew at the pretext of Park뭩 remarks.
