Moon, Abe agree to co-operate on North Korea

"I could probably give you a much better answer to that in a month or two months".

The South Korean government said last week it believed Chinese authorities had told travel agencies in Beijing to stop selling trips to South Korea, intensifying fears of a trade war between the neighbors. "If conditions ripen and provide opportunities to significantly lower military tension in the Korean Peninsula and open a path toward solving the North Korean nuclear problem, which is the most urgent threat to our security, then I think [Moon] will be able to go to Pyongyang".

On Thursday, the USA director of National Intelligence, Dan Coats, told the Senate Intelligence Committee that North Korea posed "a very significant, potentially existential threat to the United States that has to be addressed". But Trump has also declared that he would be "honored" to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un "under the right circumstances".

"The talk about a South-North summit is a little premature, but regardless of that, there's a need for a summit meeting", Suh said.

The new president said in his inauguration speech that he would "do everything I can to build peace on the Korean Peninsula".


Trump and Moon held a 30-minute phone call at 10:30 p.m. Wednesday in which the two leaders agreed to hold a summit soon to discuss North Korea and other pending issues.

Russia's President Vladimir Putin told his newly elected South Korean counterpart, Moon Jae-in, in a phone call on Friday that he is ready to play a "constructive role" in resolving North Korea's nuclear threat, the South's presidential office said. President Moon stressed that the alliance is the basis of Seoul's security and diplomatic policy direction and will continue that way, showing appreciation for Trump's efforts to prioritize the North Korean issue. Those talks collapsed in 2008.

Meanwhile, North Korea sent a rare letter of protest to the US House of Representatives on Friday warning that a new package of tougher sanctions would only spur its development of nuclear weapons, North Korea's state media reported.

Moon, South Korea's first liberal leader in a decade, also said he'll "sincerely negotiate" with the United States, Seoul's top ally, and China, South Korea's top trading partner, over the contentious deployment of an advanced US missile-defense system in southern South Korea.

Moon explained the difficulties faced by South Korean companies that were doing business in China and asked for Xi's "special attention" to ease those concerns, Yoon said.
