Switzerland offers itself as an intermediary

Tuesday, September 5th, 2017 | World News

Switzerland wants to mediate in the North Korean conflict. The country could be a place for talks between the ministers responsible, said the Swiss Federal President Doris Leuthard on Monday.

China and the US must now assume their responsibilities. "We are ready to offer our role as an intermediary," said Leuthard at a press conference. "It's really time to sit down now. Great powers have a responsibility." On the border between South and North Korea, Swiss troops have been in operation for more than 60 years, including the armistice between the two countries.

North Korea had ignited a hydrogen bomb, which is to serve as a warhead for its intercontinental missiles, despite international sanctions. US President Donald Trump had threatened a military deployment. In the course of the day the UN Security Council was to meet for a special session.
