Iran Nuclear Program
March 26, 2012 by staff
Iran Nuclear Program, President Barack Obama on Monday made a direct appeal to the leaders of North Korea and Iran, urging them to “have the courage” to step away from their nuclear weapons programs, rather than follow a path toward greater isolation and economic distress.
“You can continue down the road you are on, but we know where that leads,” Obama said in a speech that balanced notes of diplomatic persuasion with hard-edged pressure.
Addressing new leaders in Pyongyang, Obama warned that their current path would lead to “more broken dreams, more isolation and ever more distance between the people of North Korea and the dignity and opportunity they deserve.”
To Tehran, he said that “time is short” for diplomacy to defuse a standoff over its nuclear program.
Obama made the remarks on the second day of a visit to Seoul, where he is attending a nuclear t*rror*sm summit. Speaking before a group of students at Hankuk University, Obama touted his initiative to lock down loose nuclear material, as well as his broader goals of blocking the spread of nuclear weapons.
The trip started in ways that reprised similar journeys by his last two predecessors, reflecting the Korean peninsula’s status as one of the last vestiges of what used to be a worldwide divide.
