tallinn - The nuclear test conducted by North Korea last week is a reason for the European Union to consider heavier sanctions against the Pyongyang regime. EU Foreign Ministers are discussing here in Estonia on Thursday.
'I will propose to ministers today to increase economic pressure in North Korea,' said Federal Foreign Minister Federica Mogherini prior to the consultation. She spoke of a 'clear threat of international peace and security. '
A decision is not yet expected, partly because the UN Security Council is still considering new sanctions. The path of dialogue must remain open, according to the Italian.
The EU countries also tighten the sanctions in April. Minister Bert Koenders said this week to think of penalties in the field of oil, textile products and the maritime industry.
