Wallström talks North Korea and the state of the world

Foreign Minister: This verbal fighting increases the risk of mistakes.
6:32 min

Radio Sweden spoke with Foreign Minister Margot Wallström about the potential of a nuclear war between the US and North Korea as well as what Sweden is doing to remain a humanitarian superpower.

Minister Wallström said that Sweden would be happy to help facilitate communications between the US and North Korea, but that the "verbal fighting" between President Trump and Kim Jong Un is a dangerous path to go down.

"The minute you engage in that, the more difficult it will be to back off," she said. "You create expectations for further action."
