SEOUL: A spe­cial ad­viser to South Korean Pres­i­dent Moon Jae-in in­di­cated the re­duc­tion of joint war games with the US if North Korea stops nu­clear and mis­sile ac­tiv­i­ties.

Moon Jung-in, a foreign af­fairs scholar and ad­viser on uni­fi­ca­tion, diplo­matic and se­cu­rity af­fairs, said at a sem­i­nar the US strate­gic as­sets and the South Korea-US joint mil­i­tary ex­er­cises could be re­duced if Py­ongyang stops nu­clear and mis­sile ac­tiv­i­ties.

A se­nior pres­i­de­nial of­fi­cial said yes­ter­day that his com­ments were just one of some ideas, with which South Korea could cre­ate a new phase to break the cur­rent dead­lock on the is­sue.
