Kim Jong Un Seeks Peace Talks With Seoul
Let 2018’s games begin. In his New Year’s address, North Korea’s leader called for urgent peace talks with South Korea in advance of next month’s Winter Olympics, which his nation might join. South Korean President Moon Jae-in welcomed the invitation to what would be the first such negotiations in a decade. Kim continued to needle President Donald Trump, maintaining that his ICBMs can strike U.S. soil — a capability that’s a “reality, not a threat.” Trump responded, “We’ll see,” and experts warn that Moon’s eagerness could risk souring the U.S.-South Korea alliance.
