But now that the state of affairs surrounding the Korean peninsula is affected by the incident, (the government) might need to review future process of the six-party talks in relation to the current situations, Kim Young-sun, Seouls foreign ministry spokesman, told reporters in a briefing. His remarks came at a time when speculation runs high of the Demoratic Peoples Republic of Koreas hand in the recent sinking of a 1,200-ton corvette, especially after investigators looking into the incident concluded that a powerful external explosion at a close range, possibly caused by a torpedo or sea mine detonation, was the most likely cause of the incident. The countrys defense chief Kim Tae-young also publicly pointed a finger at possible torpedo attacks as a likely culprit. South Koreas Foreign Minister Yu Myung-hwan previously said that the issue can be brought to the United Nations Security Council anytime once Pyongyangs suspected involvement is confirmed to be true, but the spokesman declined to elaborate. If we take any measures as a response after investigation results come out, understanding and support of the international community is essential. So the government has been communicating with other major countries from the initial stage of the incident, Kim added. Jason Pierre-Paul Elite Jersey .
