Kissinger spoke about the main threat to international security

33
The North Korean problem is the “most urgent” challenge to international security and stability, RIA News Statement by former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger.




The politician warned that “the recognition of the nuclear status of the DPRK will lead to the destruction of the nuclear non-proliferation regime weapons (NPT). ” In this case, South Korea and Japan will also want to create their own nuclear weapons.

According to Kissinger, "the official recognition of North Korea’s right to nuclear weapons will reduce the US ability to deter other states" from developing this type of weapon.

He noted that “the fundamental task of the world community should be the denuclearization” of the Korean Peninsula. At the same time, the former head of the State Department warned Washington against unilateral actions with respect to Pyongyang.

The temptation to settle this (the North Korean problem) with a preventive attack is high. However, I would advise the US authorities not to start a unilateral war near the borders of China and Russia, in which a significant part of the states of the world will not support us,
he said at the senate hearing.

Kissinger believes that the US should “enlist China’s support in putting pressure on the DPRK” in order to force the North Korean authorities to abandon their developments.

He also expressed the opinion that the Russian-Chinese initiative, which provides for a moratorium on nuclear tests and missile launches in the DPRK in exchange for suspension of exercises in the region with the participation of the United States, "could lead to the destruction of military alliances."

Earlier, Moscow and Beijing offered Pyongyang to declare a moratorium on nuclear tests and missile launches, and to South Korea and the United States to refrain from conducting exercises in the region to stabilize the situation on the peninsula, but in Washington they ignored this initiative.

      that "recognition of the DPRK nuclear status will lead to the destruction of the nuclear non-proliferation regime (NPT)." In this case, South Korea and Japan will also want to create their own nuclear weapons.
      This is true. Yes, just at least acknowledge at least do not recognize - this process is irreversible. Until the signing of the agreement on the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons it was only in Russia (USSR), the USA, Great Britain, France and China .... but that didn’t stop you from acquiring nuclear weapons in Israel, South Africa, and India , Pakistan .... there is a suspicion that a number of countries still have (or are developing) it. So it is not a question of the presence or absence of nuclear weapons in the DPRK, but of the desire of the United States to gain a foothold in this region - at hand near China and the Russian Federation.

        And on the other side of the Earth, the solution to problems is seen in the denuclearization of the North American island. American sobs are typical. "What about us?"

          The mattresses still cannot understand that their arrogance towards other nations and the state will not end in anything good for them. Ever since the exploitation of black slaves, their elite considers themselves superhuman, similar to the ideology of Nazi Germany, and the whole world should bow to them. And then some kind of North Korea does not want to bend their backs before the hegemon, and here it does not play a big role to recognize the DPRK’s nuclear status, the fact is there, now there’s such a bummer on mattress covers, and our applause to the stubborn North Koreans.

        I think, somewhere in the subconscious, the Americans also want revenge for that Korean war.

          On the other hand, if North Koreans were guaranteed absolute security in the absence of aggressive actions on their part, then most likely this problem would not have stood. But only someone decided that having provoked the DPRK to a nuclear program, they were driven into poverty, followed by rebellion and overthrow ... They drove into poverty, but they got a bugbear. Exceptional, however.

            "On the other hand, if the North Koreans were guaranteed absolute security in the absence of aggressive actions on their part"
            I remember on the verge of the collapse of the USSR, we were also given absolute guarantees for the non-proliferation of NATO to the east ... There is no faith for them, only liars and cheaters.

    Good advice, but Trump Kissanger is not a decree. Steers on the principle - what I want, then toss and turn.
    “Recognition of the DPRK’s nuclear status will lead to the destruction of the nuclear non-proliferation regime (NPT)”
    The non-proliferation regime has already been violated by Israel, which has nuclear weapons and does not rack its brains to recognize it or not as a nuclear power.

      When the United States ceases to poke its nose into other people's affairs and ceases to give its advice on how to live and what to do, then the world will be calmer.

    The Americans themselves are to blame for this situation. There is no need to enforce their rules all over the world. Then other countries will not need such weapons to protect their borders and their interests.

    Kissinger is a realist and not an idealist like TRUMP or Clinton ... so you need to listen very carefully to his words.

        This person influences the adoption of important decisions at the top of the Washington Regional Committee ... including where there is meanness ... deception ... blood ... and dirt.
        Politics has always been a dirty business, and it will remain so for a long time.

    An unequal proposal, if the DPRK stops the launches and development of nuclear weapons, it will delay the development of defense programs for a long time, but what about the exercises? Well, they’ll not maneuver near the borders, but wherever else they will strike sooner or later. The best way to ease tensions around the world is the absence of the United States as such. And all, no one will begin to bear the light of democracy, followed by cookies, no one will shake test tubes, etc. etc.

    This fly agaric has not yet flipped its hooves, but it is necessary that it broadcasts truths. ".. a significant part of the states of the world will not support us .." - not that it will not support us, this significant part simply fiercely hates you, it is only afraid. Still afraid. In some places, dynamism begins, some, like Duterte, send it out in the open. Yeast is roaming ...

    Tricky old fox. And eat the fish, and not spike on the spike. Compromise is mutual concessions, and unilateral concessions are surrender. And the hedgehog understands that the DPRK will not go to the second option, so it should be understood a priori to such a "dick" as Kissinger. So his warnings and Wishlist - another American blah blah.

    The very first ones gave rise to this problem after the Second World War, they applied a vigorous loaf, now the first let them and denuclearize. There is nothing to blame on the mirror, since the mug is crooked.

    The United States, by its example, shows how it can relate to compliance with international law and interstate agreements — when it is deemed necessary — it is being respected, and when it is considered otherwise, it is not being respected. DPRK follows the same rules. What then worries the United States? Or do we live by the principle: we are exceptional - everything is possible for us, but not for others? North Korea became a nuclear power thanks primarily to the "efforts" of the United States. You can not admit that a pillar appeared on the road and continue driving until you meet this pillar - both stupid and painful ...

    If you remove the "Main Peacekeepers" from South Korea and Japan under the guarantees of Russia and China (and they will not deceive), then peace in this region is possible.
