Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Saturday welcomed the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’s (DPRK) decision to suspend all nuclear testing as a move in the right direction, according to Canadian broadcast network CTV Saturday.
“A declaration of suspension of nuclear tests is better than a nuclear test. I think it’s a sign that perhaps things are moving in the right direction,” Trudeau said at the Liberal Party convention in the Canadian port city of Halifax.
“I certainly think this is a small, but incremental and perhaps very impactful step in the right direction. I look forward to the bilateral visits between North Korea (DPRK) and South Korea,” Trudeau said.
DPRK leader Kim Jong Un announced early Saturday that his country will discontinue nuclear tests and testfiring intercontinental ballistic rockets from April 21, according to the KCNA, the DPRK’s state broadcaster.
The announcement came before Kim’s summits with South Korean President Moon Jae-in and U.S. President Donald Trump, expected to be held in late May or early June. Enditem
