Minister for Foreign Affairs Timo Soini says the UN security council needs to begin dialogue with North Korea in one way or another. He hopes China and Russia will use their influence and points out that also the North Korean leader must be able to show to his people that he is negotiating because he is taken seriously as a negotiation partner, not because he is weak. Mr Soini participated in the ministerial conference of the Community of Democracies hosted by US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in Washington. In his speech he discussed radicalisation and stated that societies need to show resiliency and not give in to terror.
