The American and North Korean envoys to the United Nations -sponsored Conference on Disarmament debated the danger presented by each other's nuclear capabilities in a lively exchange at a meeting held on Tuesday in Geneva, Switzerland.

The two traded blows at the UN-sponsored Conference on Disarmament in Geneva where United States disarmament ambassador Robert Wood said that North Korea might be able to hit the continental USA with a nuclear-tipped ballistic missile within months.

"We are determined to ensure that so long as nuclear weapons exist, the USA nuclear deterrent is second to none", he said.

"North Korea has accelerated its provocative pursuit of nuclear weapons and missile capabilities, and expressed explicit threats to use nuclear weapons against the United States and its allies in the region", U.S. disarmament ambassador Robert Wood told the Geneva forum. After raising concern to National Security Council officials over their consideration of a preemptive strike against North Korea, Cha wrote an op-ed for the Post claiming such an attack would "exacerbate" the "threat of proliferation".
