The DPRK’s nuclear issue can be resolved exclusively through dialogue and taking into account the interests of all parties, said Kazakh Foreign Minister Mukhtar Tileuberdi on Wednesday.
«Kazakhstan supports the «peace process» on the Korean Peninsula and Seoul’s policy of reducing tensions in the region and developing inter-Korean relations. The summits between the United States and the DPRK in 2018 and 2019 demonstrate the intention of the parties to end the era of open confrontation and mutual accusations. Kazakhstan also believes that the current problems surrounding the nuclear issues of the DPRK should be resolved exclusively peacefully through dialogue and taking into account the interests of all interested parties», — Tileuberdi said at the 12th meeting of the forum and «Central Asia — Republic of Korea».
He noted that achieving a world free of nuclear weapons is a top priority for Kazakhstan.
«In the modern world, sometimes possessing this type of weapon is not an indicator of superiority, but represents a threat to global security and an obstacle to cooperation with the international community. In this regard, I believe that the creation in Central Asia of a unique zone, free of nuclear weapons can serve as an example for the region of the Korean Peninsula», — Tileuberdi said.
