Don't sleepwalk into war over NKorea, warns UN boss

Guterres, who met with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe today in Tokyo, also says North Korea must be denuclearized for peace and stability in the region.

United Nations chief Antonio Guterres Thursday warned the world against "sleepwalking into war" over North Korea, as he called for diplomatic efforts to banish nuclear weapons from the Korean peninsula.

On Tuesday, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Washington was ready to talk to Pyongyang "without preconditions", interpreted by many as a shift in the US position.

During last month's visit by US President Donald Trump in Tokyo, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe pledged to freeze the assets of North Korean groups and individuals.

Tillerson's overture came almost two weeks after North Korea said it had successfully tested a breakthrough intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) that put the entire United States mainland within range.

The White House has declined to say whether President Donald Trump, who has taken a tougher rhetorical line toward Pyongyang than Tillerson, gave approval for the top United States diplomat's overture.

Japanese police said Thursday they had carried out several raids, reportedly in connection to alleged shipments of food to North Korea that would contravene sanctions.

Since June 2009, the Japanese government has banned any exports to North Korea as part of economic sanctions following a series of nuclear and ballistic missile tests by Pyongyang.
