Timo Soini on North Korea: « The situation is worrying »

The situation in North Korea was one of the topics at the meeting between Nordic, Baltic and British foreign ministers in London on 4 September. Finnish Minister for Foreign Affairs Timo Soini estimates that China has the biggest opportunity to influence North Korea. He notes that the situation is worrying even though an escalation is not in sight. Mr Soini believes it is in the interest of Russia and China to maintain the status quo as increased tension would immediately affect their borders. He says that in such a situation small countries can mainly advice superpowers to continue to negotiate.
