Dialogue with North Korea still possible: Blue House official


South Korea’s presidential office of Cheong Wa Dae says the “door” to peaceful dialogue with North Korea remains open, despite ongoing pressure and sanctions on the regime. A senior Blue House official told reporters on Sunday that, while it’s a difficult situation, re-engaging in talks is still an option to diffuse tensions. The official added that the Moon administration was deliberating over unilateral measures on the regime, including economic sanctions. President Moon has been forced to harden his stance on the North, following its latest ballistic missile launch, ordering the temporary deployment of four additional THAAD launchers.




청와대는 계속되는 대북 압박과 제재에도 북한과의 대화의 문은 열려 있다고 밝혔습니다. 청와대 고위 관계자는 30일 기자들과 만나 어려운 국면이지만 긴장 완화를 위한 남북대화의 여지는 남아있다고 전했습니다. 또한 관계자는 경제 제재를 포함해 독자적 대북 제재를 마련한다고 덧붙였습니다. 최근 북한의 대륙간탄도미사일 발사에 따라 문 대통령은 사드 발사대 4기의 추가 임시 배치를 지시하는 등 대북 강경정책을 고수했습니다.
