Obama 'challenges' North Korea 'to have courage to pursue peace'

Seoul , Mon, 26 Mar 2012 ANI

Seoul, Mar 26 (ANI): U.S President Barack Obama has 'challenged' North Korean leaders 'to have the courage to pursue peace' while warning of the wrath of the world if they don't.

Obama stood by his pledge for a globe without nuclear weapons, declaring flatly that the United States has more than it needs and can cut its arsenal without weakening its security or that of its allies.

According to CBS News, in remarks at Seoul's Hankuk University, Obama aimed his most stern remarks to North Korea's leaders, saying the internationally isolated country needs to change its ways because continuing down the same path will lead to 'more broken dreams' and 'more isolation.'

"By now it should be clear. Your provocations and pursuit of nuclear weapons have not achieved the security you seek, they have undermined it," Obama said.

"Instead of the dignity you desire, you are more isolated," he added.

His blunt remarks came a day after he visited the Demilitarized Zone, separating North and South Korea.

Obama described the experience as akin to witnessing a 'time warp' of despair. (ANI)
