The policy of Seoul concerning North Korea should be a serious restructuring. Liberal reformer moon Jae-In was sworn in Wednesday after winning the early elections to replace President Park Geun-Hye.
Moon supports dialogue with the North Korean leader Kim Jong-UN that contrasts sharply with the approach of the pack with tough sanctions and aggressive rhetoric. Speaking at the ceremony of the oath, he promised "as soon as possible to resolve the security crisis". "If necessary, I will immediately fly to Washington and will also travel to Beijing and Tokyo," he said. "If necessary I will also go to Pyongyang. For peace on the Korean Peninsula I'll do what I can do."
Moon also promised to further strengthen the Alliance between South Korea and the United States. Although he was elected mainly because of concerns about corruption and the economy. Former special forces soldiers and advocate for human rights mun was criticized during the campaign from the hard conservatives who think it's weak in relation to North Korea.
"I am confident that I will lead the diplomatic efforts with the participation of numerous parties that will lead to the complete abandonment of the North Korean nuclear programme and the establishment of relations between South and North for peace, economic cooperation and mutual prosperity," said moon in April during a debate.
On Sunday, Pyongyang announced that it had detained a U.S. citizen on suspicion of involvement in "hostile acts" against the regime, a few days after he accused Seoul and Washington of plotting to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong UN using a "biochemical weapons".
Last week, Washington and Seoul have announced that THAAD is partially launched, and analysts warn that the moon can help to prevent its full deployment.
