The new temporary chair of the Conference on Disarmament, North Korea, lambasted Canada for boycotting the conference, the Toronto Sun reported. At a meeting of the General Assembly in New York, in responding to a Canadian delegate's statement, a North Korean delegate said the UN should be a place for multilateralism, not "confrontation." Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird says he considers the criticism to be a "badge of honour."
