South Korean President Moon Jae-In announced Thursday the North Koreans have expressed a desire for “complete denuclearization” of the Korean peninsula.
The Kim Jong Un regime is not seeking US withdrawal from the South first.
Historic talks between President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un are scheduled to take place in weeks.
North Korea has expressed its desire for “complete denuclearization” of the Korean peninsula and is not seeking conditions such as U.S. troops withdrawing from the South first, South Korean President Moon Jae-in said on Thursday.
Moon said big-picture agreements about normalization of relations between the two Koreas and the United States should not be difficult to reach through planned summits between North and South, and between the North and the United States, in a bid to rein in the North’s nuclear and missile programs.
“North Korea is expressing a will for a complete denuclearization,” Moon told reporters.
“They have not attached any conditions that the U.S. cannot accept, such as the withdrawal of American troops from South Korea. All they are expressing is the end of hostile policies against North Korea, followed by a guarantee of security.”
