PM speaks to South Korean president by phone on Monday evening as both leaders agree tougher sanctions are vital to contain rogue regime
Malcolm Turnbull has spoken to the president of South Korea, Moon Jae-in, reassuring him of Australia’s support in the face of the ongoing security threat posed by North Korea.
Turnbull spoke to president Moon by telephone on Monday evening, and the South Korean president thanked Australia for its support in pursuing tough sanctions against North Korea, which are the subject of ongoing negotiations in the UN security council in New York.
The North may have found a way to make a nuclear warhead small enough to put on a missile, but firing one at the South is likely to provoke retaliation in kind, which would end the regime.
