I discussed the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) with my European counterparts at the EU Foreign Ministers meeting in Tallinn on 7-8 September. A peaceful solution to this crisis requires a concerted international effort to maximise political and economic pressure on the leadership in Pyongyang and bring the DPRK back to the negotiating table. The EU needs to play its part by stepping up this pressure.
