South Korea proposes rare military talks with North

18 Julio 2017, 04:22 | Bibiana Flor

North Korea has conducted 11 missile tests this year, despite worldwide condemnation.

While most young South Koreans have long ago given up on the idea of a united Korea, they remain anxious about the threat of invasion or missile attack, especially as Greater Seoul - the capital, where half the country's population live - is only 30 miles from the border.

One features a fist crushing a U.S. missile while the other evokes even more destructive imagery, showing an array of warheads locked in on a target that appears to be the U.S. Capitol.

It is unclear whether North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un will agree as he "remains suspicious" of his Seoul counterpart and his relationship with the U.S., reports ABC news. The missile is said to be capable of reaching Alaska. We do have some bargaining chips with Beijing in this regard including a warning that we may otherwise extend diplomatic recognition to Taiwan and provide them with significantly more military aid. Adding coyly, "We will see what happens".

North Korea has a long record of agreeing to talks and then merely seeking concessions, such as food aid for its people. It would endanger our hostage military force in South Korea and possibly our bases in Japan. The training drills by land, air and sea are meant to serve as a show of strength.

The proposals come after Moon said at the G20 summit in Hamburg this month he was in favor of dialogue despite the "nuclear provocation" of North Korea's latest missile test.

Moon Jae-in, a liberal former human rights attorney, came to office following a snap election in May promising a softer approach including restarting humanitarian aid and exchanges, which threatens to put his administration at odds with its USA ally.

"But North Korea has to consider that deploying an operational ICBM would motivate the United States to improve its defences". However, North Korea is not wavering from its stand. Washington believes a number of Chinese banks have handled transactions related to business with Pyongyang.

This is puzzling to economists because North Korea has no access to the worldwide financial system, which other countries tap to fund their trade deficits.

These actions from Congress have had limited success in subduing North Korea.

Myanmar's former ruling junta, which, like North Korea, was also widely shunned by the outside world over its suppression of human rights, was known to have ties to North Korea, which included sending missile experts and material for arms production to Myanmar.

Russian Federation also has a role to play, according to Greitens.

Ms. Ahn said she was now in China with other female peace activists from the United States and Canada.

"We're not only talking about constricting normal, legal trade to convince North Korea to change course", says Greitens. "So Russia, I think, is important both from this legal, economic perspective but also from its illicit economic activities". "But his face turned sour after Moon's remark [that China should do more to rein in North Korea]".

In an unprecedented gamble, Trump has mixed security and economic issues in shaping his North Korea policy.

Her concern is not grasping North Korea officials' train of thought will lead the miss a move.
