North Korean ‘provocations’ only lead to its isolation: Seoul’s foreign minister

Park Jin says South Korea should compel Pyongyang to denuclearize through both sanctions and dialogue

The international community’s resolve to stop North Korean “provocations” is stronger than Pyongyang’s will to develop nuclear weapons, South Korea’s foreign minister said Monday.

In a press conference in Seoul, Park Jin also stressed the need for “thorough” implementation of U.N. sanctions on the DPRK, while leaving the door open for dialogue.
