     Fact sheet In Focus: National Security

3:30 P.M. EDT

THE PRESIDENT: Today the United Nations Security Council passed a unanimous resolution, sending a clear message to the leader of North Korea regarding his weapons programs. This action by the United Nations, which was swift and tough, says that we are united in our determination to see to it that the Korea Peninsula is nuclear weapons free.


President George W. Bush comments on the passing of a resolution by the United Nations concerning the actions of North Korea before departing the White House on October 14, 2006. White House photo by Paul Morse I have said all along there is a better way forward for North Korea. There's a better way forward for the people of North Korea. If the leader of North Korea were to verifiably end his weapons programs, the United States and other nations would be willing to help the nation recover economically.

The message today, however, says to the leader of North Korea that the world is united in our opposition to his nuclear weapons plans.

Thank you.
