UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan said Tuesday that the international community must take "very urgent steps" to deal with the dual problems of North Korea's and Iran's nuclear ambitions. Annan, speaking ahead of a meeting with South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun on Tuesday, urged all parties to stalled six-nation talks on North Korea's programs to resume them, saying human rights and other topics should not be allowed to block the discussions. "The nuclear issue is by far the most important and should be given a separate category and priority as compared with human rights and other activities," Annan told reporters Monday after meeting the South's Foreign Minister Ban Ki-moon in Seoul.
