LONDON, December 7. /TASS/. Pyongyang has rather effective means of delivering nuclear weapons including tactical missiles, Chief Scientist of the Institute of World Economy and International Relations of Russia’s Academy of Sciences, retired Major General Vladimir Dvorkin said at a meeting of the supervisory board of the International Luxembourg Forum on Preventing Nuclear Catastrophe.
According to Dvorkin, North Korea’s missile program is "close to the one developed in Iran" since the two countries had been sharing experience in the nuclear sphere. "They are already capable of fitting nuclear warheads onto tactical missiles," the Russian member of the Luxembourg Forum noted.
Former Australian Foreign Minister Gareth Evans, a member of the Luxembourg Forum supervisory board, said in turn that it was necessary to continue dialogue with Pyongyang. He believes that the North Korean leadership understands very well that using nuclear weapons would mean suicide.
Evans said that it was also necessary to keep up the sanctions pressure while remaining calm and searching for opportunities for a meaningful dialogue.
The International Luxembourg Forum on Preventing Nuclear Catastrophe was established in 2007 based on a decision made at the International Conference on Preventing Nuclear Catastrophe. The forum comprises 49 credible and globally renowned experts from 14 countries.
