Diplomatic solution to North Korean crisis could come through Cuba: Trudeau

039;N. Korea Names Communist Party Official as State Security Chief'

Trump uses his social media accounts to condemn and threaten North Korea on a regular basis.

Canada had an interest in seeking solutions, not just because of regional security but also because the flight path of possible North Korean missiles would pass over its territory, Trudeau said.

The visitor was accompanied by Pak Chang Yul, ambassador of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea in Havana; Pak Yong Su, Director of the Department of Diplomatic Documents; and Ri Il Gyu, Deputy Director of the Asia, Africa and Latin America Division at the Foreign Ministry.

Cuba and North Korea have maintained diplomatic relations since August 1960, after Fidel Castro established a communist state on the Caribbean island. Cuban and North Korean diplomats have been meeting in Havana, and they sent out a stark message to Donald Trump.

Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno RodrĂ­guez Parrilla spoke of the importance of respecting "peoples' sovereignty, independence and free determination". The joint statement went on to accuse the Trump administration of breaching worldwide law.

"They strongly rejected the unilateral and arbitrary lists and designations established by the US government which serve as a basis for the implementation of coercive measures which are contrary to worldwide law", the statement said.

North Korea condemned the move and said the it would not abandon its nuclear weapons program in the face of sanctions. An alliance between Cuba and North Korea throws up a frightening vision from the past, the prospect of a foreign power deploying nuclear missiles in Cuba.

The agency said North Korea has no connection to terrorism and "doesn't care whether or not the United States places the hat of terrorism on our heads".

Cuba was designated a State Sponsor of Terrorism in 1981, but was removed from the list in May 2015 amid a thawing of relations between Havana and Washington.

In the wake of President Trump's declaration of North Korea as a state sponsor of terror on Monday, Rodriguez also rejected what he called the United States' "unilateral certifications and dictates" on North Korea - insisting they served as a basis for "the application of coercive measures contrary to global law". Russian Federation describes Trump's move as "another scaremongering act and PR move" that could lead to catastrophe on "a global scale".

"These sorts of actions push the situation to the extreme".

Unfortunately, it would seem that the U.S. vs.

"They will concentrate on bilateral relations but the global situation will be discussed, including the situation in the Korean peninsula as well as the Syrian question", she said.
