North Korea's global threat needs global response: NATO chief

Stoltenberg sees collective security as guard against missile strikes

Jens Stoltenberg, secretary-general of NATO, voiced support for "economic, political and diplomatic pressure" on North Korea in an interview with The Nikkei.

BRUSSELS -- North Korea's nuclear and missile program is a "global threat" and "requires a global response," the secretary-general of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization said Friday, while cautioning that "war would be disastrous."

With the possibility of a strike on members like the U.S. and European countries emerging, the defense body needs to work more closely with the likes of Japan and South Korea to turn up the heat on Pyongyang, Jens Stoltenberg told The Nikkei at NATO headquarters here.
