North Korea seeks 'complete denuclearization', says Moon, as U.S. vows continued pressure

SEOUL/GENEVA (Reuters) - North Korea has expressed its commitment to “complete denuclearization” of the Korean peninsula and is not seeking conditions, South Korean President Moon Jae-in said on Thursday, as the United States vowed to maintain “maximum pressure” on Pyongyang.

Moon said big-picture agreements about denuclearization, establishing a peace regime and normalisation of relations between the two Koreas and the United States should not be difficult to reach through summits between the North and South, and between the North and the United States.

“I don’t think denuclearization has different meanings for South and North Korea. The North is expressing a will for a complete denuclearization,” Moon said during a lunch with chief executives of Korean media companies.

“They have not attached any conditions that the U.S. cannot accept, such as the withdrawal of American troops from South Korea. All they are talking about is the end of hostile policies against North Korea, followed by a guarantee of security.”

North Korea has defended its nuclear and missile programmes, which it pursues in defiance of U.N. Security Council resolutions, as a necessary deterrent against perceived U.S. hostility. The United States stations 28,500 troops in South Korea, a legacy of the 1950-53 Korean War.

Of course not. Anyone that thinks that this would be happening without President Trump in office is fooling themselves.

If at their opening meeting Kim comes out with a red MAGA hat on, will that be enough evidence?

CNN and their dem allies would rather see NK nuke the US, South Korea or Japan, killing millions, because they could then blame it on Trump. That is how sick they are.

I wonder what fat boy wants for his nukes?
Personally, in his position, I’d want to loot the treasury, collect my favorite concubines, and get first class tickets (and residency documents) for someplace that is NOT North Korea.

I'm calling it right now, that bringing DPRK out of darkness and isolation will be lauded as the greatest diplomatic achievement since the fall of the USSR. There will surely be a Nobel Peace Prize to be shared by Kim Jong-un and Moon Jae-in. Xi Jinping will also be lauded as a key player, while Trump will get minimal mention as helping to facilitate the deal between these two great leaders. In fact, they may claim the deal happened despite Trump and his clumsy, arrogant, childish tweets!

I'm not getting my hopes up that this deal will actually happen, but Trump could solve both the North Korean and Palestinian problems, and he would get no recognition.

"That's mighty bold talk for a one-eyed old fat man!"

I'm pretty sure John Wayne would be a Trump supporter!! Maybe some creative person could do a new take on one of those conversations that John Wayne had with Lauren Bacall from 'The Shootist' ala those hitler videos. Bacall was a known lefty and she could be arguing with Wayne concerning why Hillary should have been President.
