Boston cardiologist meets North Korean diplomats to discuss denuclearization

A Boston-area cardiologist and an advocate against nuclear weapons met with North Korean diplomats ahead of the 2018 United States-North Korea Summit in Singapore, reports WFXT, the FOX affiliate in Boston. 

Jim Muller, MD, considers nuclear weapons to be “the biggest health risk to the world population” and hopes to prevent a nuclear war. He is a co-founder of the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War and had been invited to speak in Pyongyang later this year.

He told WFXT he hopes this week’s summit will encourage both nations to denuclearize. 

"Sooner or later, humanity has to eliminate nuclear weapons," Muller told WFXT. "Or nuclear weapons are going to eliminate humanity."
