A long-time advocate of diplomacy, South Korea’s President Moon Jae-in has recently sought to assure US officials that he will accept whatever direction President Trump decides to go on North Korea. At the same time, he offered to meet Kim Jong Un.
Moon made the comments in a Thursday speech at the G20 summit, and also proposed that North and South Korea come to some sort of agreement on reuniting families separated by war, offering to let North Korea cooperate in the 2018 Winter Olympics.
Other South Korean officials followed up the statement by insisting that Moon is still working with Trump and still supports the idea of “raising pressure” on North Korea, despite an offer of a diplomatic meeting which is extremely contrary to President Trump’s anti-diplomacy stand.
Moon said he believes the lack of contact between North and South is “highly dangerous” and that if the two sides get to the negotiating table they could potentially resolve a number of outstanding issues, form the North Korea’s nuclear program to the formalizing of the end of the 1950-53 Korean War.

South Korea’s presided sought to “assure US officials that he will accept whatever direction President Trump decides to go on North Korea”.
Pathetic. This sounds like South Korea’s president is conceding that the US effectively runs his country.
Why can’t S. Korea tell the US and its 29,000 soldiers to take a hike? And conclude its own peace with the North?
It’s going to be a much bigger hike. There are approximately 30,000 US dependents and contractors as well in S. Korea. The dependents — spouses, kids, pets — have regular evacuation drills for just such a occurrence.
I have to add, back in 2001, North and South Korea had started meetings to discuss reunification of the two countries. George Bush tossed a monkey wrench into it to prevent it from happening.
CJ you are right Sir: USA’s policies will finally meet fate like in Viet Nam or may be Worse than That, GOD knows Best about, what is going to happen due to USA Administration’s Satanic Policies in this world?
Once again it is up to Kim and Kim alone. Carrots, Carrots everywhere.. “you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink”.
I believe Kim would agree to Korean unified Korea especially if he can be ruler of both Koreas . How would that work out for you moon I suppose better than nuclear war .
