Moon, Trump  talk over phone on Korean Peninsula issues
    2017-August-8  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

SOUTH KOREAN President Moon Jae-in yesterday talked with his U.S. counterpart Donald Trump over phone on the nuclear and missile programs of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK).

Moon said the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue should be resolved in a peaceful, diplomatic manner, based on close cooperation between South Korea and the United States, Moon’s spokesman Park Soo-hyun told a press briefing.

The South Korean leader said it can never be tolerated that any more horrors of war happen on the Korean Peninsula.

On July 28, the DPRK test-launched what it called an intercontinental ballistic missile, which flew about 1,000 km and was lofted over 3,700 km.

During the dialogue, Moon urged joint efforts to encourage Pyongyang to come to the dialogue table for the dismantlement of the DPRK’s nuclear program by using heavy pressure and sanctions.

The U.N. Security Council on Saturday unanimously adopted new sanctions on the DPRK over its recent ballistic missile test-launches. It bans the exports of seafood and minerals such as coal, iron, iron ore, lead and lead ore.

The DPRK, however, rejected the new U.N. resolution on its nuclear and missile program yesterday, saying it would continue to strengthen its nuclear capabilities.

The South Korean president said it needed to show Pyongyang that a door for dialogue would be open when the DPRK makes the right choice.

Top diplomats of South Korea and the DPRK had a brief encounter Sunday on the sidelines of a series of foreign ministers’ meetings on East Asian cooperation, Yonhap news agency reported.

It marked the first time since the new South Korean Government was launched May 10 that the foreign ministers of the two sides met, though briefly.
