Kerry weighs in on North Korea execution, Bob Levinson in Iran

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s execution of his uncle was “an ominous sign” of instability and danger, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said in an interview broadcast Sunday.

Kerry also weighed in on reports about former FBI agent Robert Levinson, who went missing in Iran seven years ago. The United States has not stopped efforts to get him released, Kerry told ABC's "This Week."

The secretary of state is on an overseas trip that's taken him to Jerusalem, Ramallah, Vietnam, and will carry him through Manila and Tacloban later this week.

    This is one time, I agree with horseface. This guy in NK, is bad news – if he treats his own family this way, it means he's impulsive and desperate, and acting like a true ruthless dictator. i also have to commend, the news organizations for going global with this news, and doing it fast- because this is the only thing that dictators care about. I think, with mass media and split second news these things, going forward will always be done with the lights on, which is a big change to how evil dictators use to be able to function, and thanl god! Keep up the good work cnn, fox, bbc and rest.

    Part of international diplomacy must include respect, a willingness to listen and good a honest effort to consider oncerns of all parties with an interest in peace. Israel doesn’t want peace they want war as do many conservative leaders in our USA. So should we listen to Israel? Calling any country an axis of evil will sting the heart of that country’s leadership and fester for years. We are trying diplomacy in lieu of killing, contrary to conservative thinking and I believe it is the high road. NK is the red blot we need to give full vigilance to.

      No. Listen to the supreme leader orders to get the bomb. Then he will control the middle east with all his terrorists.

    "The U.S. has not stopped it's efforts to get Bob Levinson released", eh? What about those stupid new sanctions that those idiots in Washington want to impose on Iran? What do those jerks on Capitol Hill take us for, anyway?

      Do you like bomb?
      The regime of mullah killed Bob Levinson because he was investigation about the Aytollah wealth.
