THREATS FROM NORTH KOREA: S. Korea FM calls N. Korea's nuclear development anachronistic

At the bilateral economic forum in Saint Petersburg, Russia, South Korea's foreign minister Yun Byung-se called North Korea's nuclear weapons development anachronistic, saying that North Korea cannot turn back time and will have to realize that the global community is turning its back towards the regime.

The minister also mentioned the revolutionary events the world is undergoing such as the normalization of ties between the US and Cuba, wishing that such will also blow into Pyongyang.

TO tackle the North Korea issue and work on other mutual interests, Yun hoped to build up on the various cooperation channels between South Korea and Russia.

Meanwhile, China's Ministry of Commerce has expanded the list of items banned for export to North Korea, in an effort to prevent Pyongyang from building more nuclear weapons. The list includes 40 items including magnetic materials, laser-welding equipment and chemicals that could further produce chemical warfare agents.

The ministry said the new list is part with UN sanctions adopted in March as punishment for Pyongyang's nuclear test early this year.
