Given the lack of progress in talks on North Korea’s nuclear weapons programme, US President Donald Trump has consulted with South Korean President Moon Jae-in.
Both agreed in a telephone call on Saturday that it was necessary to continue the dialogue with the Communist leadership in Pyongyang, according to Moon’s office.
Both had come to the conclusion in their 30-minute conversation that the situation was “serious.” The phone call came about at the request of Trump, Moon’s office said. He talked extensively with Moon about ways to advance the peace process on the Korean Peninsula.
Both agree that “the momentum for dialogue should be maintained in order to achieve rapid results in the negotiations on denuclearisation,” it said.
North Korea’s First Vice-Minister of Foreign Affairs Choe Son Hui on Thursday criticised Trump’s statements alluding to the possible use of military force in the nuclear dispute and again describing North Korean leader Kim Jong-un as “rocket man.” Choe warned against a new war of words.
