S.Korean FM calls for DPRK's denuclearization
South Korea's Foreign Minister Yu Myung-hwan said here Friday that his country could not maintain a "win-win" relationship with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) without the latter giving up its nuclear program, Xinhua reported.
Yu Myung-hwan, during a meeting with business leaders, said his government cannot tolerate the DPRK continuing its nuclear weapon development.
"We are firm in that this (denuclearization) must be fulfilled in order for the two Koreas to coexist and maintain a win-win relationship," Yu said.
Yu, pointing out that the nuclear issue is the key barrier in inter-Korean ties, said the DPRK should make the right decision in the matter.
"We are prepared to actively help the North (DPRK) when it shows sincere signs of nuclear disarmament," Yu said.
The minister also said the six-party talks is the "most effective" tool in resolving the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula.
