    The European Union is ready to help South Korea in deescalating tensions with Pyongyang amid the latter's continued nuclear tests, European Council President Donald Tusk said on Friday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — A delegation from Seoul, led by Cho Yoon-je, arrived in Brussels on Thursday to hold meetings with a number of EU top officials and discuss bilateral relations, as well as the North Korean nuclear threat.

    ​The situation on the Korean peninsula has aggravated over the series of missile launches and nuclear tests conducted by Pyongyang in recent months in violation of UN Security Council resolutions.

    Earlier in May, the South Korean president decided to send special envoys to China, Russia, Japan, the United States and the European Union.
