South Korean President 'Confident' Of No War With North
21 Août, 2017, 07:02 | Author: Marc Bacque
President Moon Jae-in says he would consider sending an envoy to North Korea in an effort to jumpstart a diplomatic solution.
Trump had promised to seek negotiations and approval from South Korea before taking any options regarding North Korea, Moon also said.
General Joe Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, held talks with his Japanese counterpart at the defence ministry in Tokyo, wrapping up a regional tour during heightened tensions with North Korea.
Dunford was in Seoul speaking to South Korean military officials, including Defence Minister Song Young-moo.
In light of surging tensions between North Korea, its neighbors, and the US, South Korea has made a decision to deploy more powerful US missile defense batteries.
The tentative interest in diplomacy follows unusually combative threats between Trump and North Korea amid worries Pyongyang is nearing its long-sought goal of being able to send a nuclear missile to the US mainland.
North Korea and the United States exchanged threats of military action last week, with Pyongyang saying it will develop a plan to strike the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam. This is a firm agreement between South Korea and the US.
For the past decade under conservative South Korean governments, talks between Seoul and Pyongyang had nearly been suspended over Pyongyang's nuclear tests and ballistic missile developments.
The US has not taken any public steps to prepare for hostilities such as evacuating Americans from Seoul, which is within range of North Korean artillery, or moving ships, aircraft or troops into position for an imminent response.
A joint statement released after the meeting highlighted a strong condemnation of North Korea's "recurring provocations", which they noted had "entered a new phase" this year.

Korea issue with US
His calls for a peace treaty and dialogue have been drowned out by the war of words between Trump and Kim. State media reported that leader Kim Jong Un was watching USA moves before deciding to order the test.
US forces will join military forces from major South Korean units representing all services, as well as South Korean government participants.
"A dialogue between South and North Korea must resume".
Pyongyang then threatened to fire a salvo of missiles towards the USA territory of Guam - a plan that leader Kim Jong-Un last week delayed, but warned could go ahead depending on Washington's next move.
The state-run Korean Central News Agency also quoted Kim on Monday warning Washington about the upcoming drills.
"Military action on the Korean peninsula can only be decided by the Republic of Korea", Moon told reporters in Seoul, referring to his country's formal name. The liquid-fuel missile is created to be fired from road mobile launchers and has been previously described by North Korea as built for attacking Alaska and Hawaii.
"It would be reckless and irresponsible, considering North Korea's behavior", he said, pointing to the increased missile and nuclear testing.
As is normal, the statement underlined that the United States would preserve Japan's security using the "full range of capabilities, including USA nuclear forces".
Moon says that his government shares a view with Washington that the objective of strong sanctions and pressure against North Korea is to draw Pyongyang to negotiations.
"It is my first time out here to make my voice heard, and I believe the deployment of THAAD is only for the sake of strategic security interests for the United States, and we must stop the deployment before it triggers another war on the peninsula", said Han Min-woo, 37, who participated in the rally.
