US and South Korean Presidents Discuss to Expedite Nuclear Talks with North Korea

  • On Saturday, the US President Donald Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-in had a half-hour long telephonic discussion on the ways of maintaining diplomacy with North Korea. The discussion of the top leaders of the US and South Korea comes at a time when the North Korean leadership warned of waning patience with stalled nuclear talks. The South Korean statement revealing about the talk also said that both the US and South Korea have agreed about consulting on the matter with each other regularly. The statement of the South Korean presidential Blue House said that both Trump and Moon Jae-in have agreed to maintain the momentum of dialogue in this “severe” situation so that “prompt results from denuclearization negotiations” can be achieved. The senior North Korean officials have reminded the US, in a series of tweets in recent weeks, that the latter should not ignore the year-end deadline. DPRK has called the United State’s offer of more talks a stalling tactics ahead of the 2020 US Presidential election (scheduled to be held on November 3, 2020 with the selected presidential electors to elect the new President on December 14, 2020, and the winner of the election to be inaugurated on January 20, 2021).
