South Korean President Urges North Korea to Stop Delaying Talks

The New York Times reported [1]:

“The South Korean president’s appeal followed a New Year’s Day speech [2] by Kim Jong-un [3], the North Korean leader, in which he said he was ready to meet Ms. Park — but only if the mood was right.

“North Korea should stop hesitating anymore and accept calls for dialogue,” Ms. Park said Monday during her nationally televised New Year’s speech.

In recent months, her government has repeatedly proposed dialogue with Pyongyang. But the North has not responded, instead accusing the South of raising tensions by allowing activists to use large helium balloons to drop anti-North Korean leaflets on the North and continuing joint war games with the United States military.”
