(Yonhap Interview) Schroeder voices support for inter-Korean talks

(Yonhap Interview) Schroeder voices support for inter-Korean talks

South Korea may decide to ship refined petroleum to North Korea to power an inter-Korean cultural event next week.

South Korean and US defense chiefs met Friday to discuss North Korea, issuing a statement that continued diplomacy-backed sanctions can drive the rogue state to the negotiating table and tamp down the escalating threats between Pyongyang and Washington.

Sources also say that South and North Korea will each receive half of the seats that have a clear view of the stage (which represent about half of the total 620 seats in the concert hall).

He added that the response to the threat remained "diplomacy led, backed up with military options available to ensure that our diplomats are understood to be speaking from a position of strength".

Washington agreed to delay them until after the Olympics, which will be held on February 9-25 in the South Korean alpine town of Pyeongchang.

Secretary Mattis welcomed the recent advent of Olympics-related talks between the two Koreas, but stressed that those talks alone do not address the "overarching problem".

Russian Federation has denied re-exporting North Korean coal by saying that it abide by the norms of global law.

South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha said Thursday at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland that the notion of using military force to make North Korea stop its nuclear program was "unacceptable".

Padmaavat protests: Supreme Court to hear plea by Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh today
Protesters claim the film falsely depicts a romance between 14th-century Hindu queen Padmavati and Muslim ruler Alauddin Khilji. The apex court also restrained other states from issuing any such notification or order banning the screening of the movie.

The latest United Nations measures against North Korea are the toughest yet; a response to a recent intercontinental ballistic missile test that Pyongyang says put continental America within range.

Lee is the widow of former South Korean President and Nobel Peace Prize victor Kim Dae-jung, who is remembered for his rapprochement policies with the North that led to a historic summit with late North Korean leader Kim Jong Il in 2000.

Sigal Mandelker, U.S. undersecretary of the Treasury for terrorism and financial intelligence, criss-crossed the region this week seeking more effective cooperation on the sanctions.

On Friday, a researcher from North Korea's Social Science Institute issued a warning in the country's Rodong Sinmun newspaper that inter-Korean talks have not lowered the threat of a nuclear war on the peninsula.

Mattis also praised South Korea for recent efforts to enforce North Korean violations of United Nations economic sanctions, but stressed that diplomacy, backed by military power, must be the focus of the US effort to achieve stability on the Korean Peninsula.

"We expect South Korea's real GDP to grow by 3.0% y/y through 2019", stated Scotiabank.

Abe also intends to tell Moon that their countries and the U.S. need to work closely together to deal with North Korea's nuclear and missile development.
