Russian FM calls for preservation of Iran nuclear deal

Sergey Lavrov

Earlier this week in Moscow, Lavrov said that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will not agree to give up nuclear weapons in exchange for lifting sanctions if the same arrangement with Tehran collapses. The Korean War marked the very first major armed conflict after the end of the Second World War and in the nuclear age.

North Korea admitted in 2002 to having abducted 13 Japanese nationals, adding that eight of them had died.

Do you want hard numbers?

During the meeting, the ministers agreed their nations would work together to ensure that sanctions imposed on North Korea are strictly enforced and agreed to take steps to keep North Korea from evading sanctions. As far as masses are at risk, the deterrence calculations vary.

The families of Japanese abducted by North Korea, and those believed to have been taken, will urge the International Criminal Court to prosecute the North's leader, saying the lack of information about their loved ones is a human rights abuse.

His proposals were on building confidence on disarmament, including making it more hard for signatory countries to withdraw from the Nuclear Nonproliferation Agreement. Turning that peace into a "cold", less immediately threatening peace, and then attempting to provoke a non-catastrophic regime change, is our best hope - but the odds here are also long. On November 28, 2017, crew members on a commercial flight from San Francisco to Hong Kong witnessed parts of North Korea's intercontinental ballistic missile test flying through the sky.

Tehran has said it will not renegotiate the deal, under which Iran agreed to limit its nuclear programme in exchange for the lifting of worldwide sanctions.

The US leader's remarks regarding Washington's plans to further enhance its missile offense capabilities are improbable to have any positive impact on the situation in the region, unlike resumed talks between the South and the North, according to Ramana.

The fear of a risky peace is closely tied to the fear of a hair-trigger war.

"They are beginning to disrupt the North Korean economy, and maybe one reason for Kim's sudden olive branch, though part of his motive is to try to drive a wedge between the US and South Korean, a time-honoured tactic".

Kim made it clear in his speech there was no stopping North Korea because under his rule the regime has "finally realized the great historic cause of completing the state nuclear force". The price of failure in such a mission would be devastatingly high, but so, likely, would the price of success.

Speaking to CNN in December, Curtis Melvin, a senior fellow with the US-Korea Institute at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, said privately run pizza parlors, coffee shops, bars and gas stations have quietly mushroomed in Pyongyang under Kim's watch. "A combination of diplomacy and deterrence, based on the already impressive strength of South Korean and US forces ... is a wise alternative". Instead of waiting for the next test or the latest move from Pyongyang, Washington should immediately begin imposing sanctions on both North Korean and third-party entities.
