Stoltenberg urges greater pressure on North Korea
NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg urged greater pressure on North Korea over Pyongyang’s nuclear ambitions. He added that while NATO’s goal is a “world without nuclear weapons,” the alliance would remain a nuclear bloc “as long as they exist,” RadioFreeEurope/RadioLiberty reports.

“A world where Russia, China, and North Korea have nuclear weapons, but NATO does not, is not a safer world,” he said.

Stoltenberg said he was encouraged by the declarations by Washington and Moscow this month that the two sides were in compliance with a 2010 arms-control treaty, known as New START, that limits the two countries' massive nuclear arsenals.
