Foreign ministers to hold meeting on North Korea in Canada

틸러슨 등 16개국 외교장관, 밴쿠버서 북핵압박 외교해법 모색

The United States and Canada will host a meeting in Vancouver next week on measures to tackle North Korea's nuclear and missile programs.
It'll be a two-day gathering, bringing together the foreign ministers of 16 countries, including South Korea and Japan.
Kim Mok-yeon reports.
The U.S. State department revealed that foreign ministers from 16 countries will be participating in the Vancouver Foreign Ministers' Meeting on Security and Stability on the Korean Peninsula.
U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland will host the two day meeting, which will kick off on Monday.
On Thursday, U.S. State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said that the meeting will bring together nations from across the world to demonstrate international solidarity against North Korea's dangerous and illegal nuclear and missile programs.
The 16 participating nations are countries that fought alongside or aided South Korea during the Korean War in the 1950s.
The State Department's director of policy planning Brian Hook says Washington will look for practical mechanisms to pressure Pyongyang, such as maritime interdiction.
Hook also reiterated the State department's latest announcement that no plans have been made for talks between North Korea and the U.S. during the Olympic period, stressing that there will be "no direct talks" between the two nations.
However, it's thought that South Korea's Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha, who will be in Vancouver for the meeting, will hold bilateral talks with Tillerson ahead of the meeting on Monday.
North Korea's state-run Korean Central News Agency also reported on the meeting, calling it a dangerous gamble that aggravates tensions on the Korean peninsula.
