REMARKS BY PRESIDENT OBAMA
BEFORE MEETING WITH PRESIDENT JOSÉ BARROSO OF THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION
Prague Congress Center
Prague, Czech Republic
11:39 A.M. (Local)
PRESIDENT OBAMA: Hello, everybody. I hope you’re not tired of me by now.
Q Sir, what’s your message for North Korea, please?
PRESIDENT OBAMA: We delivered it today. They, I think, have taken a provocative action. It creates instability in their region, around the world. If they want to take an appropriate path to rejoin the international community and break out of their isolation, that’s available to them. That’s not the path they’re taking right now. And we intend to work with the international community to deliver a strong message.
