Is this a swift return to S Korea’s Sunshine Policy?
Moon’s N Korea strategy takes shape with bilateral dialogue proposal
The Government of South Korean President Moon Jae-in proposed holding military and Red Cross talks with the north on Tuesday, in a sign of how Moon intends to deal with the Kim Jong-un regime.
The Hankyoreh reports that the military talks will aim to defuse tensions on the border, while Red Cross talks hope to organize reunion of families separated during the Korean War.
The proposal notably dropped previous demands that such talks would have to wait for the right conditions and a halt of provocations from the North. It also comes after Moon appeared to express support for the Trump administration’s decidedly tougher stance on the Kim regime during his recent visit to Washington.
