Kerry Says North Korea Won’t Be Accepted as Nuclear Power

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said North Korea will not be accepted as a nuclear power by the international community, while calling for dialogue with the totalitarian state to ease escalating tensions.

Speaking in Seoul with South Korean Foreign Minister Yun Byung Se, Kerry today said it would be a “huge mistake” for North Korea to conduct a missile test, something South Korean officials say could happen at any time. He called on China, North Korea’s closest ally, to help defuse the situation.
