Seoul still con­fi­dent

Fraser Coast Chronicle - - WORLD -

SOUTH Korea said yes­ter­day it be­lieved North Korea re­mained com­mit­ted to im­prov­ing re­la­tions de­spite strongly crit­i­cis­ing Seoul over on­go­ing US-South Korean mil­i­tary drills and in­sist­ing it will not re­turn to in­ter-Korean talks un­less griev­ances are re­solved.

South Korea’s Uni­fi­ca­tion Min­istry spokesman Baek Tae-hyun said Seoul ex­pected Py­ongyang to faith­fully abide by agree­ments reached in a lead­ers’ sum­mit last month.

The Korean lead­ers is­sued a vague vow on the “com­plete de­nu­cle­ari­sa­tion” of the penin­sula and pledged peace.
