All nuclear powers must denuclearise – Malaysia

KL: All nuclear powers must denuclearise, Straits Times,  Reme Ahmad, South-east Asia Editor , 3 June 18 

Malaysia’s Defence Minister Mohamad Sabu said yesterday that his country supports the move to denuclearise the Korean peninsula, but that all the nuclear powers should be stripped of their nuclear arsenal in the future.

Malaysia is also hopeful for a good outcome for the June 12 summit in Singapore between United States President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Mr Mohamad said in a media interview on the sidelines of the 17th Shangri-La Dialogue security conference.

“Malaysia is fully supportive of any commitment towards the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula. The problem is why only Korea? Why only Iran?

“Why not America, China, Russia, India, Pakistan? So that is monopoly.

“We hope that denuclearisation must be (for) all.”

He said that it was “dangerous for the world” to have the US or North Korea threatening each other with their nuclear weapons.

He described the Trump-Kim summit as a good start towards denuclearisation.

“Whether the meeting will be successful or not, that is another matter, than the fact they would even meet,” said Mr Mohamad, who was sworn in as Defence Minister two weeks ago.

He is attending the Shangri-La Dialogue for the first time and has been meeting his regional and international counterparts…….https://www.straitstimes.com/asia/kl-all-nuclear-powers-must-denuclearise
