Moon Jae-in, tireless craftsman of peace

Moon Jae-in is trying to revive the process of the North-US dialogue, which seems to be stymied.

Once again, South Korean President Moon Jae-in proposes to play the role of inciting the negotiations between Pyongyang and Washington, which seem to be stalled since the Hanoi summit of 27 and 28 February. At a meeting held in Washington on April 11, Moon Jae-in and Donald Trump "Assured each other of their mutual trust and expressed their support for the follow-up to the dialogue between Pyongyang and Washington", resume Hankook Ilbo.

President Moon urged the US president on the"The importance of maintaining momentum for dialogue", while reaffirming that Seoul was "On the same wavelength as Washington in the denuclearization of North Korea". President Trump recalled that "Even if it did not meet all American expectations, Washington and Pyongyang had agreed on many points" and "The discussions would continue". He took the opportunity to thank in advance the South Korean president for the future massive purchase of US weapons by South Korea, the newspaper recalls.

The newspaper Hankyoreh stresses President Moon's willingness to organize a new inter-Korean summit "To contribute to the process of denuclearization by improving relations Seoul-Pyongyang".

On the eve of this Moon-Trump meeting, the North Korean Central News Agency reported Kim Jong-un's remarks: "We must stand up with our own strength to strike a blow to those who mistakenly think they can kneel us with sanctions." "Kim Jong-un did not directly name the Americans, but left to hear that he would not be led by them in the forthcoming negotiations ", comments Pressian. On April 11, the Supreme People's Assembly re-elected him to his current position as Chairman of the State Affairs Commission.
