Seoul: Trump willing to try engagement with N Korea, on conditions”

Trump on Wednesday said during his meeting with South Korean President's Special Envoy Moon Jaei that he looked forward to working closely with Mon Jie-nen to resolve North Korea's nuclear issue and wants to achieve peace by North Korea.

Haley previously indicated that new sanctions could target oil, a critical import for North Korea mainly from China, and she said Tuesday the US also wants sanctions on organizations and businesses in countries that are helping Pyongyang.

Even though during his presidential campaign Moon Jae-in advocated a more moderate approach towards North Korea, he has also said that Pyongyang must slow down its weapon development before South Korea could pursue any meaningful dialogue with it.

North Korea launched Sunday what appeared to be its longest-range ballistic missile yet, saying it was capable of carrying a "heavy nuclear warhead" in a test aimed at bringing the U.S. mainland within reach.

South Korean Unification Ministry spokesman Lee Duk-haeng told reporters the government's most basic stance is that communication lines between South and North Korea should reopen.

South Korea and the USA agreed during a visit to Seoul by Mr Trump's national security advisers this week to formulate a "bold and pragmatic" joint approach, Mr Cho added.

The state news agency also said Sunday's launch tested the nation's ability to carry a "large size" nuclear warhead.

Of course, United States actions with South Korea involving this year exercises that emulate an invasion of North Korea are never regarded as provocative nor is the recent deployment of the THAAD anti-missile system or sending an aircraft carrier with support vessels to the peninsula.

The United States, which has 28,500 troops in South Korea to guard against the North Korean threat, has called on China to do more to rein in its neighbour.

For his part, Lee said Moon asked him "to express his thanks to President Xi for his message of congratulations after our election". A rap group backed by China's government is warning South Korea in a music video that "you're going too far" with the deployment of a USA missile defense system, as Beijing seeks to bring its state-supported cultural forces to bear in the worldwide dispute.

He also said the the country's military was ready and capable of striking back should the North attack.

On Thursday, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi told Lee that Seoul must "remove the obstacles that have been placed on the road to good relations between our two countries".

"You either support North Korea or you support us, because that's what it comes down to", Haley said at a news conference. US President Donald Trump has recently made remarks to this end which have caused confusion in South Korea. "As concerned parties to the North Korea nuclear issue, both sides must make political commitments as soon as possible, show sincerity and make constructive efforts to engage in dialogue through substantive action". His envoy for Russian Federation will leave next week.
