In an interview with the national Slovenian broadcaster for their Globus programme, CTBTO Executive Secretary Lassina Zerbo discusses North Korea and the need for a legally binding moratorium on nuclear testing.
“We cannot talk about denuclearisation without getting North Korea to engage on a moratorium on nuclear testing and signing and ratifying the Comprehensive test ban treaty.”
Zerbo questions whether sanctions can continue to be of effect in the short term, given the DPRK continues to be logistically capable of conducting new tests.
