Welcome

Foreign Minister Heiko Maas on North Korea

21.04.2018 - Press release

Foreign Minister Heiko Maas issued the following statement on North Korea’s announcement that it will suspend its tests of nuclear warheads and intercontinental ballistic missiles with immediate effect:

I welcome this announcement as a step in the right direction. However, in order to enter into a serious political process towards the complete denuclearisation of North Korea, it is necessary for Pyongyang to follow this up with concrete steps and to disclose its entire nuclear and missile programme in a verifiable way. This demand is in line with the expectations of the international community.
