Statement by Sam Nunn on North Korean Nuclear Test

The steady progress made by North Korea on its nuclear and missile programs is deeply concerning.  The United States cannot solve this problem alone, and I hope that the UN Security Council will take swift action in response to this recent act of provocation.

However, in order to take steps that could fundamentally affect the North Korean leadership and its decision making, we need to work even more closely with our allies in the region who feel this threat acutely.  I would urge China, in particular, to intensify its leadership role in helping to solve this crisis.
