The European Union urged North Korea and Iran to heed international calls Tuesday to return to negotiations to resolve standoffs with the international community over their nuclear programs. The EU foreign ministers said they have no choice but to back diplomatic talks at the United Nations about sanctions against Iran and to also push for UN punitive measures against Pyongyang for setting off a nuclear blast Oct. 9. At a meeting, they cautioned the latter not to carry out any further tests, as reports from Japan and South Korea seemed to indicate. Separately, the EU backed a decision by the UN's five permanent Security Council members and Germany to pursue limited sanctions against Teheran, while keeping the door open to future talks.
