GENEVA - A senior United Nations disarmament official on Tuesday welcomed an easing of tensions between North and South Korea, but called for further steps towards removing nuclear weapons from the divided peninsula.

Izumi Nakamitsu, Under-Secretary-General and High Representative for Disarmament Affairs, told the UN-sponsored Conference on Disarmament (CD): "Such engagement must still be translated into the resumption of sincere dialogue leading to sustainable peace and denuclearisation on the Korean Peninsula".

There was no immediate reaction from North Korea's delegation at the Geneva forum, which has begun its 2018 session.
