Turkish PM Meets South Korean President In Seoul

Turkish Prime Minister, Binali Yildirim, expressed worry over North Korea's nuclear and missile programmes, after the north tested last week what it called its most advanced intercontinental ballistic missile that could reach all of the United States.

Turkey has recently become concerned about North Korea's nuclear weapons development, Yildirim said at the joint news conference with his South Korean counterpart Lee Nak-Yon after their meeting.

Earlier in the day, Yildirim also met with South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

North Korea regularly threatens South Korea, the United States and their allies, and its official KCNA state news agency said at the weekend U.S. President Donald Trump's administration was "begging for nuclear war" by staging the large-scale military drills.
