Text size Aa Aa

TOKYO (Reuters) – The head of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) said on Tuesday he will pressure all nations to implement sanctions against North Korea to counter the global threat it poses. “For NATO, it is important to put pressure on North Korea to make sure all nations implement the sanctions to reach a peaceful resolution,” NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said at the start of a meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Tokyo. Pyongyang has undertaken an unprecedented missile testing programme in recent months, as well as its biggest nuclear test yet in early September, angering its only major ally China and drawing further sanctions from the United Nations and the United States.
