Honey Moon? New South Korean leader's popularity surges with common man touch

North Korea hotspot Asia 0

Some believe South Korea will first try to address China's dissatisfaction regarding THAAD, and then use it as leverage and try to persuade China to cooperate on bringing about North Korea's denuclearization.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in said Friday that he will take a cautious approach to the issue on the US Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) missile defense system, China's Xinhua news agency reported.

Beijing vehemently opposes the missile shield, saying its powerful radar will allow it to monitor missile launches, aircraft flights and other sensitive activities in northeastern China.

Seoul and Washington have argued that the missile system is aimed at North Korean aggression, while China sees it as a threat to its own security. "And he said he looks forward to cooperating closely with President Moon in resolving the North Korean nuclear issue so as to produce an outcome", Hong said.

"The fact that Trump said he will not have talks for the sake of talks reiterated our joint stance that we are open to dialogue but the right situation must be formed", said Foreign Ministry spokesman Cho June-hyuck in a regular media briefing.

In the video, the group also takes shots at what Wang referred to as "vulgar behavior" within China, such as vandalism against South Korean-made Hyundai vehicles.

Moon has sent envoys to the United States, China, Japan and the European Union this week in what the government has called "pre-emptive diplomacy".

The golf course, which Lotte Group, the country's fifth-biggest conglomerate had owned, was designated as a site for THAAD that Seoul and Washington agreed in July previous year to deploy in southeast South Korea. In March, South Korean officials voiced concerns that Beijing was limiting tourism to their country as an unofficial sanction. South Korean businesses have faced boycotts, especially the retail group Lotte which provided the land on which the system is being constructed.

A separate summit could also be held the following month, Lee said. "It can be controlled and reversed by Beijing".

China's foreign minister urged South Korea's new government on Thursday to remove "obstacles" to good relations amid Chinese anger at the U.S. deployment of an anti-missile system on the Korean peninsula.

A special envoy representing Moon is due to visit China on Thursday for talks on THAAD and the overall bilateral relationship.
