Russian Federation Council Speaker Valentina Matvienko told reporters on Monday after a meeting with Deputy Chairman of North Korea’s Supreme People’s Assembly Ahn Dong Chun on the sidelines of the Inter-Parliamentary Union assembly that North Korea believes its only effective method to secure the country’s security and sovereignty is with nuclear weapons.
“They stressed once again that they consider possession of nuclear weapons as the only effective way to protect their country and their people and the only guarantee of their sovereignty,” she said.
“They mean the complicated 70-year history of relations with the US,” Matvienko clarified.
She then explained that the North Korean delegation at the union is not ready to speak to their South Korean counterparts.
