Peace Farm Statement
North Korean Relations
'The Peace Farm witnesses to the dangers of nuclear weapons on our planet. We work for the abolition of all nuclear weapons by moral and political persuasion in concert with like minded groups throughout the world.'
"We have been following the development of the crisis in relations with North Korea with growing concern. Sadly we have not finished a peace treaty after 60 years. Now we hear the North Korean government say that a state of war exists between them and South Korea, and that any war might quickly escalate into a nuclear confrontation. Finally Russia says that all parties on both sides of this conflict should 'exercise maximum responsibility and restraint' and refrain from any provocative activities.
"We heartily applaud and echo Russia's call for responsibility and restraint and for all parties involved to refrain from any actions which might be seen as provocative. Lets have some effective leadership in this dangerous crisis."
