S. Korea offers to talk with North on Olympic cooperation
02 January, 2018, 11:54 | Author: Yolanda Murray
"This is reality, not a threat", Mr Kimsaid during a televised New Year's Day speech.
Kim said he would consider sending a delegation to the Winter Olympics Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, in February.
Kim Jong Un also says expanding his arsenal is now a priority. Relations between the Koreas have plunged as North Korea has expanded its weapons programs amid a hard-line stance by Moon's conservative predecessors.
'The improvement of relations between North and South Korea can not go separately with resolving North Korea's nuclear programme, so the foreign ministry should coordinate closely with allies and the global community regarding this, ' Moon said on Turesday. But U.S. -based experts saw Kim's speech as a clear attempt to divide Seoul from its main ally, Washington, which has led an global campaign to pressure North Korea through sanctions to give up weapons programs aimed at developing nuclear missiles capable of hitting the United States.
Talks could provide a temporary thaw in strained inter-Korean ties, but conservative critics worry that they may only earn the North time to flawless its nuclear weapons.
Kim said in his speech Monday that North Korea previous year achieved the historic feat of "completing" its nuclear forces.
It has shrugged off a raft of new sanctions and heightened rhetoric from Washington as it continues to drive forward with its weapons programme, and has said its arsenal is for defence against aggression from the United States and its allies. Kim added the goal for 2018 is to "mass produce and deploy nuclear warheads and missiles".
"Kim Jong Un's strategy remains the same". But Kim also repeated that South Korea must stop annual military exercises with the United States, which he calls an invasion rehearsal against the North.
