Can't be complacent on North Korea threat, UK minister

Posted April 19, 2017

Deputy Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Reezal Merican Naina Merican told the Dewan Negara today that as a result of Malaysia's prudent diplomatic approach, there was no need for a third party to intervene in the issue.

He said Malaysia opted to undertake direct negotiations because it was confident that the crisis could be resolved amicably.

"In Jong-nam's case, we did not see a need to use a mediator". However, I wish to inform, because of our pragmatic attitude, many countries including from Asean helped in the matter.

"The embassies of Pakistan and the European Union were also helpful".

"We will not allow North Korea to harm our friends or allies", Flake said, paraphrasing the USA government's stance.
