South Korea is ready to send a special envoy to Pyongyang only if the dialogue with the North Korean administration shows tangible results that would lead to easing of tensions on the Korean peninsula, the President of the Republic of Korea Moon Jae-in said, RIA Novosti News Agency reported on August 17.
The President of South Korea said, that the country needs guarantees that the talks with Kim Yong-un are to be productive, adding that a special envoy will be sent to the DPRK as long as the dialogue improves inter-Korean relations and facilitates successful settlement of the nuclear crisis on the peninsula.
Moon Jae-in also said that military actions will never happen again on the Korean peninsula, but reminded that in case of provocative actions by North Korea the United States can undertake retaliatory measures.
The main condition the United States sets forth towards North Korea is full or partial shut down of missile development program and refuse nuclear weapons. Western experts stated repeatedly that the North Korea will never meet the United States’ claims as it sees direct interdependence between its nuclear potential and survivability among hostile neighbors.
Some experts believe that the United States should put up with DPRK’s nuclear potential, establish a dialogue, and start building economic ties to try to disarm DPRK by the “soft” means of influence.
