Korean nuclear conflict would result in utter devastation

Putin warns Korean nuclear conflict could make Chernobyl ‘a fairy tale’ TV NZApril 09, 2013 Source: ReutersRussian President Vladimir Putin says any nuclear conflict on the Korean peninsula could make Chernobyl look like a fairy tale.
His remark came as North Korea suspended its sole remaining major project with the South, after weeks of threats against the United States and South Korea.

Putin said conflict on the peninsula could cause greater devastation than the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in 1986.

“I would make no secret about it, we are worried about the escalation on the Korean peninsula, because we are neighbours,” he told a joint news conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel during a visit to a trade fair in Germany.

“And if, God forbid, something happens, Chernobyl which we all know a lot about, may seem like a child’s fairy tale. Is there such a threat or not? I think there is… I would urge everyone to calm down… and start to resolve the problems that have piled up for many years there at the negotiating table.”

Reclusive North Korea’s decision to all but close the Kaesong industrial park coincided with speculation that it will carry out some sort of provocative action – another nuclear weapons test or missile launch – in what has become one of the most serious crises on the peninsula since the end of the Korean War in 1953…..
