Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman on Thursday said that South Korea and Israel face a common nuclear threat, during his meeting with South Korean Foreign Minister Kim Sung-hwan in Seoul, Israel Radio reported.

Liberman said that just as South Korea has been confronted by the North Korean nuclear threat and by North Korean tactics which led to the secret development of a nuclear weapons program, Israel is today faced with Iranian plans to secretly develop nuclear weapons under the guise of delay tactics and diplomatic negotiations.

The foreign minister also noted that Iranian possession of nuclear weapons will destabilize the region and is a global threat just as North Korea's possession of nuclear weapons has destabilized its region and already represents a global threat.

The next stop on Liberman's diplomatic trip is Beijing where he will try to convince China to support tougher sanctions against Iran in continued international efforts to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.
