Japanese PM warns of nuclear danger

Japanese Prime Minister Taro Aso says China's and North Korea's nuclear activities have damaged security in their region of Asia.
"The security environment in northeast Asia is increasingly tough," Aso said, referring to the recent launch of a North Korean missile and China's modernization of its nuclear arsenal.
Aso has called for reinforcement of the nonproliferation regime and said Japan wants to host an international conference in 2010 to discuss global nuclear disarmament.
Aso spoke at the end of the EU-Japan summit taking place in Prague on Monday.
The Czech Republic currently holds the rotating EU presidency.
