UN welcomes re-opening of hotline between North and South Korea
The United Nations has welcomed the re-opening of a hotline between North and South Korea. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres voiced hope for more diplomatic initiatives to end the peninsula’s nuclear standoff.
UN spokesman Farhan Haq said, it is always a positive development to have a dialogue between Pyongyang and Seoul. He said, UN Security Council resolutions call for the de-nuclearisation of the Korean peninsula and Mr Guterres hopes that enhanced diplomatic initiatives will help to achieve that goal.
