Kore­ans lose faith in Moon

Daily Mercury - - WORLD -

THE shine is start­ing to come off South Korean Pres­i­dent Moon Jae-in’s en­gage­ment strat­egy with the North.

The lib­eral politi­cian, who re­versed nearly a decade of con­ser­va­tive hard-line pol­icy to­ward North Korea af­ter his elec­tion last year, is pre­par­ing for a third sum­mit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un amid grow­ing pub­lic scep­ti­cism about his ap­proach.

Mr Moon, who goes to Pyongyang to­mor­row, has seen his ap­proval rat­ing fall to 49 per cent in a re­cent Gallup Korea sur­vey, the first time it dipped be­low 50 per cent since he took of­fice in May 2017.
