Nuclear Crisis: Trump gives condition for N/Korea talk

Nuclear Crisis: Trump gives condition for N/Korea talk

South Korean President Moon Jae-In on May 14 condemned the North's latest missile launch as a "reckless provocation", staged days after his inauguration in an apparent test of the new administration.

Trump made the remarks on Wednesday during a 15-minute meeting with special envoy Hong Seok-hyun in Washington, Yonhap News Agency reported on Thursday.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Cho June-hyuck in a regular media briefing 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".

The North, which has defied all calls to rein in its weapons programmes, even from its lone ally, China, has been working on a missile, mounted with a nuclear warhead, capable of striking the U.S. mainland.

South Korean President also said that North's nuclear and missile capabilities seem to have advanced rapidly.

Hong said he handed Moon's letter to Trump and expressed thanks for supporting South Korea's security and inviting the South Korean leader to visit Washington next month.

After the missile launch on Sunday, the United States, Japan and South Korea called a UN Security Council meeting to press the DPRK to change course and dismantle its missile and nuclear programmes.

Greeting South Korean presidential envoy Lee Hae-Chan in Beijing, Foreign Minister Wang Yi said bilateral relations have made huge progress over the years.

Lee Hae-chan, a member of the ROK National Assembly and former prime minister, is visiting China from Thursday to Saturday as President Moon Jae-in's special envoy. 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 US missile defense system, as Beijing seeks to bring its state-supported cultural forces to bear in the global dispute.

Speaking to Lee, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said there had been some "undeserved setbacks" in relations this year, in apparent reference to THAAD.

When Xi called Moon last week to congratulate him on his election, Moon reportedly asked Xi for help in ending the economic retaliation that has taken a toll on South Korean businesses.

Tillerson also said that the USA sends its messages only through public channels and the North shouldn't inquire about USA intentions "through back channels", according to the official.

"South Korea is our most important neighbor, with which we share strategic interests", Abe stressed, adding that he looked forward to holding a summit with the new president at an early date. So if North Korea is willing to stop taking actions to defend itself then the United States might talk to them. "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".

On Wednesday a pro-Pyongyang newspaper based in Japan urged Moon to forsake the security alliance with the United States.
