S. Korea to ease China over United States, N. Korea talks

USA officials on Sunday defended President Donald Trump's decision to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, saying the move was not just for show and not a gift to Pyongyang.

The South Korean newspaper cited an unidentified senior official in South Korea's presidential office.

Pyongyang has been surprisingly quiet on the slew of momentous, and possibly even historic, events that have come in quick succession over the past few months.

Trump is actually not very popular here, but 75 percent of South Koreans continue to hold high opinions of the US, even as support has wanted globally in the Trump era.

National Security Council chief Chung Eui-yong on Monday briefed Chinese leaders on his recent meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

Chung said Moon is hoping for a "continued active role by China" in engaging North Korea and invited Xi to Seoul. "It is important to implement words through action and for the North to take concrete action".

The two parties in Fajardo's coalition won just under 9 percent of votes in the lower house and 13 percent in the Senate. Other parties skeptical of the Farc accords, such as Radical Change and the Conservatives, came in second and third.

South Korea, the third-largest steel exporter to the USA and a strategic ally on the Korean Peninsula, has already put in a request for a waiver. "We've not heard anything directly back from North Korea, although we expect to hear something directly from them".

In an unexpected move last week, Trump agreed to hold a first-ever meeting with Kim, which South Korea said would take place by the end of May after a North-South summit in April.

Abe expressed support for talks with North Korea on condition that they are aimed at making Pyongyang give up its nuclear ambitions.

A chain of events had been taking place recently, especially since the visit of a high-level North Korean delegation to the Pyeongchang Olympic Winter games, in which Kim Yo-jong, the sister of the North Korean leader, was a key member. North Korea has also not yet formally responded to the announcement of talks last week. It says it now has the capability to hit the continental United States with a nuclear-armed missile (though experts are not sure yet whether this is true). -South Korean military exercises during that time.

Sherman, who served as special adviser to President Bill Clinton on North Korea, traveled to North Korea with then-Secretary of State Madeleine Albright in 2000. "So, he would use this to extract payoffs", McMaster continued, "as the regime has done with their nuclear program in the past, and to drive the States and our allies away from this peninsula that he would then try to dominate."For those duly skeptical of the efficacy and wisdom of preventive war - not least because of the incredible human suffering it would necessarily entail-the truth of McMaster's argument is not almost so "clear" as he claims.As retired Col. Andrew Bacevich, a military historian, has argued that, Kim is indeed "engaged in a huge game of blackmail", but not as McMaster describes".

Again, we don't know. "I would say just remain patient and we'll see what happens".
