Laud­able US pol­icy

The Australian - - COMMENTARY -

US Sec­re­tary of State Rex Tiller­son has de­clared that it is the aim of the US to rid the Korean penin­sula of nu­clear weapons. This is a laud­able aim from which no sen­si­ble per­son could dis­sent. How­ever, he did not also de­clare it a pri­mary aim of US for­eign pol­icy to rid the more dan­ger­ous area of the Mid­dle East of its nu­clear chem­i­cal and bi­o­log­i­cal weapons.

It would be an equally if not con­sid­er­ably more laud­able aim be­cause the Mid­dle East is an area that presents a much greater dan­ger to world peace and sta­bil­ity. Barry Fox, South Mel­bourne, Vic
