In an interview with a French newspaper, South Korean President Moon Jae-in praised progress on denuclearization with North Korea, saying that Kim remains “sincere, calm, and polite,” but is growing frustrated at international mistrust.
Moon has been advancing the idea of a peace deal, and also says the international community should be rewarding North Korea to “assure Kim Jong Un that he took the right decision in deciding to denuclearize.”
Several nations have raised the possibility of easing sanctions on North Korea at the UN, with Russia and China both endorsing that idea. The US has been loudly resisting this idea, insisting that sanctions if anything should be tightened.
Moon is visiting France earlier this weeks, and is to meet with President Macron on Monday. Moon has been an outspoken supporter of diplomatic progress with North Korea, and eager to sell the idea of progress internationally.
