Seoul: As per the information shared by the top Seoul envoy, US President Donald Trump is looking forward to working closely with his South Korean counterpart Moon Jae-in and is eager to make peace with North Korea with the help of engagement if the conditions are right.
Trump made the remarks on Wednesday during a 15-minute meeting with special envoy Hong Seok-hyun in Washington, Yonhap News Agency reported on Thursday.
“(President Trump) talked about sanctions on North Korea and cooperative relations with China. And he said he looks forward to cooperating closely with President Moon in resolving the North Korean nuclear issue so as to produce an outcome,” Hong said.
“Though we’re now at the stage of pressure and sanctions, he said he has a willingness to make peace through the so-called engagement if certain conditions are right. He said, however, that what he’s willing to do is not talk for talk’s sake but for talks that produce an outcome,” the envoy said.
