S.Korea willing to hold summit with North
January 11, 2018

Seoul: South Korean President Moon Jae-In said on Wednesday he would be willing to sit down with the North’s leader Kim Jong-Un, as the international community welcomed an agreement for Pyongyang to send its athletes to the Winter Olympics in the South.

The Games in Pyeongchang next month have long been overshadowed by geopolitical tensions, with the North launching missiles capable of reaching the US mainland in recent months and detonating by far its most powerful nuclear device to date.

President Donald Trump is open to talks between the United States and North Korea, while remaining determined to apply “maximum pressure” over Pyongyang’s nuclear programme, the White House said on Wednesday.

During a phone call with his South Korean counterpart Moon, Trump expressed his openness to holding talks with Pyongyang “at the appropriate time, under the right circumstances.”
