Blix Warns of Korean "Powder Keg"

Published onsdag 18 oktober 2006 kl 11.56
Pro-nuclear demonstration in North Korea

Former UN arms inspector Hans Blix says North Korea regards the recent United Nations sanctions as a declaration of war.

The measures were imposed after Pyongyang tested a nuclear weapon. The Swedish diplomat, who now heads up an international commission on weapons of mass destruction, says the situation is a powder keg, which can ignite if, for example, foreign navies enforce the sanctions and intercept North Korean ships.

Speaking to Swedish Radio News, Blix also compares the treatment of North Korea with Iran, which the international community also fears is developing nuclear weapons. North Korea, he says, has been offered both a carrot and a stick, while Iran is just being shown the stick.
