· General-Secretary of the UN at the Pentagon to discuss the Korean crisis ·
First signs of Pyongyang to reopen negotiations
In an unprecedented visit to the Pentagon, Secretary-General of the UN expressly requested a meeting with U.S. military leader to discuss the serious crisis unfolding on the Korean peninsula and in peace-keeping missions that the UN has spread throughout many countries. Ban Ki-moon, received with military honours, spent about half an hour with Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel and with the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin Dempsey. The UN General Secretary cautioned that the slightest incident could cause the situation to go out of control.
“There was much discussion of North Korea and the risks of an error in judgement or a miscalculation” in the current tension between the communist regime of Pyongyang, Seoul and Washington, reported an anonymous source at the Pentagon.
