South Korea’s President: ‘A Lot of Credit to President Trump’ for Recent Peace Talks

Give President Trump “a lot of credit” for recent peace talks between South Korea and North Korea, South Korea President Moon Jae-in said on Wednesday.

The New York Times reported:

President Moon Jae-in of South Korea warned on Wednesday that North Korea would face stiffer sanctions if it resumed weapons tests, while crediting President Trump with helping force the North to resume dialogue and strike a broader agreement to improve Korean ties.

“I am giving a lot of credit to President Trump,” Mr. Moon said at a nationally televised news conference a day after the two Koreas forged their agreement during border talks. “I am expressing my gratitude.”

As CNN and others reported, representatives from both countries met at the border on Tuesday “for the first time in more than two years.” Among discussion topics were the weather, “military tensions,” family reunifications, and peace.

Trump previewed the talks in a tweet sent last week, claiming “[p]erhaps that is good news, perhaps not.”

In a tweet sent two days later, Trump sought to claim credit for the “dialogue” between South Korea and North Korea.

Moon, of South Korea, appears ready to give Trump the credit he desires.
