Moon, Trump agree to maintain close cooperation over NK nuke threats

Moon, Trump agree to maintain close cooperation over NK nuke threats

Talking to reporters, Suh endorsed Moon's call for a summit meeting with North Korean ruler Kim Jong Un, although saying it would be hard for such a meeting to take place soon, considering the tension over the North's nuclear program.

He also said he was prepared to go to Pyongyang "if the conditions are right". "There will be a need to demonstrate specific actions that will lead to the denuclearization of North Korea".

Moon told Xi that it would be easier to settle the missile-defense issue if North Korea wasn't engaging in provocations, the statement said.

North Korea, as of Wednesday afternoon, had yet to comment officially on Moon's election, but experts say there's no reason for it to dislike his win.

"We are well aware of China's concerns and concerns about the deployment of the THAAD", Moon said.

President Moon Jae-in was sworn in on Wednesday and vowed to immediately tackle the hard tasks of addressing North Korea's advancing nuclear ambitions. What is key is that there is no quick fix to this situation, nor is there any immediate danger from North Korea if it is left alone.

North Korea's heightened threat could change Moon's calculus once in power.

Mr Trump invited Democratic party leader Mr Moon to visit the United States "as early as possible".

"I take this office empty-handed, and I will leave the office empty-handed", Moon said.

In his first discussion with the new South Korean leader, Chinese President Xi Jinping asserted that he doesn't want South Korea to deploy a US missile system, according to the BBC.

There's widespread opposition in South Korea to the THAAD deployment and loud protests from China, which also sees the system as a security threat.

The Trump administration has also been dismayed by Moon's questioning of deployment of a United States missile defence system in South Korea and expects some friction in ties, although United States officials say the new president may moderate his stances in office and the effect on the alliance will be limited.

Mr Sinan Ulgen, a former Turkish diplomat and analyst at Carnegie Europe, said: "Turkey doesn't have much room to move here". The US Special Presidential Envoy for the Coalition has said that the Syrian Arab Coalition (SAC) led the retaking of Tabqa.

The deployment of THAAD was agreed past year by South Korea's previous administration after North Korea conducted a long-range rocket launch that put an object into space.

On Wednesday, Chinese President Xi Jinping noted in a congratulatory message to Moon that he would like to see China and South Korea work together in a spirit of mutual understanding and respect to ensure the development of Sino-South Korean ties in order to benefit the two countries and peoples, according to Xinhua News Agency.

China hoped South Korea "pays attention to China's security concerns" and deals "appropriately" with the THAAD issue, a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman told a briefing in Beijing.

North Korea on Thursday urged Moon's government to end what it considers confrontational policies, including joint drills with the US military.

The two leaders agreed to exchange special envoys "at an early date", with Moon proposing sending a separate delegation to Beijing and Xi inviting him to visit, Yoon said.

Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed the crisis on the Korean Peninsula in the telephone talks with South Korea's new president, Moon Jae-in, during which the sides emphasized importance of the diplomatic settlement of the crisis, the Kremlin press service said in a statement Friday.
