Matthew Barzun, the US ambassador to the UK, tells Nick Ferrari that North Korea’s actions are intolerable.

North Korea received international condemnation last week after it detonated a nuclear device, in spite of a ban on such testing.

Speaking to LBC, Matthew Barzun made clear that the country will face serious consequences for its actions:

“It’s deeply troubling and they are behaving incredibly irresponsibly.”

The international community, including North Korea’s closest ally, China, have long been seriously opposed to the isolated communist state’s nuclear programme. The ambassador says America will take a hard line on the continued defiance.

“We're not going to stand for that. The other members of the six party talks have strongly condemned it as we have and we will not tolerate a nuclearised North Korea.”

In the conversation with Nick, he also spoke about the current president, Barack Obama, and how history will judge his two terms:

“I think it will judge him very favourably for preventing a worldwide recession that very easily could have been a worldwide depression.

“A lot of sort of politically unpalatable decisions had to be made to save not only our economy but also prevented it from taking down the world economy.”

He also cited the Obamacare programme, which has seen 12 million more people get health cover, as another positive legacy of his presidency.
