SOUTH KOREA: Need To Resume Dialogue With North Korea

“Even if the summit between the U.S. and North Korea did not generate a satisfactory mutual agreement, we hope that the dialogues between South Korea, North Korea and the United States will resume as soon as possible, so that the path towards peace on the Korean peninsula continues,” said Fr. Matthias Young-Yup Hur, spokesperson of the Archdiocese of Seoul, to Agenzia Fides.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in expressed the belief that the United States and North Korea will end up agreeing on denuclearization, despite the failure of the summit between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un. Moon urged the parties “to work for a rapid resumption of dialogue because we do not want the deadlock to prolong.”
