Un Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, says there will be lots of “hiccups” in the discussions between the United States and North Korea on denuclearization, “but I think there are very good opportunities for this dialogue to lead to a solution — a positive solution.”
He told a press conference Thursday in the U. N. interest is to support that effort,” which is essential for global peace and security. He said all the U. N. bodies continue to remain available to help, including the nuclear agency.
Guterres said: “This is a complex process. It is a difficult negotiation, and I believe that there are inevitably a number of ups and downs along the way.”
“We need to persist and ask all countries in the region to help facilitate things for the events to achieve the peaceful denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula, he said.
