Moon: Seoul Ready for Talks if N. Korea Stops Provocations

President Moon Jae-in said Thursday that Seoul is willing to hold talks with no conditions attached if North Korea stops further nuclear and missile provocations.

Speaking at an event marking the 17th anniversary of the historic inter-Korean summit in June 2000, Moon said said North Korea's decision to abandon its nuclear ambitions will demonstrate its determination to implement inter-Korean agreements. He said that if the North acts on this decision, South Korea will actively support it.

The president also said that Seoul is urging a response from the North and is willing to discuss ways to implement previous cross-border agreements.

He proposed comprehensive talks on the complete dismantlement of North Korean nuclear arms, establishing a peace regime on the Korean Peninsula as well as normalization of North Korea-U.S. relations.

Moon said that Pyongyang's nuclear and missile development has become a serious threat to peace and security in Northeast Asia and around the world.
