Lib Dems: Cable comments on reports of North Korea’s sixth nuclear test

by Steve Beasant on 4 September, 2017

Commenting on reports that North Korea claim to have successfully tested a nuclear weapon which could be loaded onto a missile, amidst rising international tensions, Liberal Democrat Leader Vince Cable said:

“This alleged advancement North Korea’s nuclear weapons programme only strengthens the need to for an urgent diplomatic response to the crisis.

“There is no military solution that does not risk the lives of millions, and no doubt that Trump’s war of words with Kim Jong-un has only served to heighten tensions.

Liberal Democrats are clear that the way forward requires engaging with China and other countries in the region to deescalate tensions. The government must urgently schedule time in Parliament to discuss this issue, and any unilateral military response must be ruled out.”
