Malaysia urged world powers Saturday not to consider using force against North Korea following its claimed nuclear test, saying military action had previously failed to resolve problems in Iraq. "The mistakes made with Iraq shouldn't be repeated, now that North Korea has nuclear weapons," Malaysia's Foreign Minister Syed Hamid Albar was quoted as saying by the national news agency, Bernama. "Even now, peace has not been achieved in Iraq." Syed Hamid, whose country opposed the US-led invasion of Iraq, called on the United Nations to maintain diplomatic measures in dealing with North Korea, stressing that any military conflict would endanger regional security. North Korea should heed international criticism over the nuclear test it said it conducted Monday, and return to six-party talks on its nuclear program, Syed Hamid said.
