Seoul urges Pyongyang to take more de-nuclearisation steps to end sanctions

Seoul, Jan 10: Highlighting the importance of corresponding measures to accelerate the denuclearisation process, South Korean President Moon Jae-in has stressed the need for North Korea to take more concrete and faster denuclearization steps to end international sanctions.

"I believe North Korea needs to take practical denuclearization steps more boldly if it wishes to resolve the issue of international sanctions because the issue of international sanctions depends on the speed of North Korea's denuclearization process," the president told a press conference held at his office.

Pyongyang is said to be demanding corresponding measures for the denuclearization steps it has taken so far, while Washington says the North needs to do more. Moon said such a gap may stem from years of distrust and hostility. (UNI)
