Seoul asks Pyongyang to stop provocations to improve its negotiating capacity

June 25. (EUROPA PRESS) –

The South Korean Unification Minister, Kwon Young Se, has asked North Korea to stop provoking an escalation of tension in the area to improve the negotiating environment with its neighbor to the South when it comes to reestablishing its relations.

“If Pyongyang is seeking to raise its negotiating power and create more favorable conditions through provocative acts, it has come up with a very wrong idea,” the minister said in comments collected by the South Korean official Yonhap news agency.

The minister has also made it clear that the country’s conservative president Yoon Suk Yeol will not raise his hand over Moon Jae In’s previous administration of North Korea.

The government will seek a “practical and flexible dialogue” with the North in a responsible manner, the minister added before asking Pyongyang to accept his dialogue offers.

In this sense and according to the minister, it is not impossible for the two parties to create a “considerable level” of joint infrastructure projects based on a consensus of the international community.


The minister thus responds to North Korea for approving this Friday a military action plan with the aim of expanding and strengthening “further the deterrence of war” in the country, after the Central Military Commission of the Party has agreed on it in an important session that lasted three days.

According to North Korean news agency KCNA reported.
